At the southern end of Chile, the southernmost point of the continent, can be found Cape Horn island. Discovered by Sir Francis Drake by accident in 1578, it was visited in 1616 on a search for a new more southernly passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific by two Dutchmen and named after the natal village of one of them, Hoorn in Holland. The island with a height of 435 Meter houses today a small naval base which also serves as a weather station. Every eight weeks a small boat brings supplies of food and other necessities which are then transported uphill by the funicular. In addition, there is a chapel (the nearest one further south is in the Antarctic) and a lighthouse which, however, is out of use. The island can be visited by groups, and the participants then receive a stamp in their passports to confirm their visit.
