The story behind the establishment of Puerto Williams is almost like something out of the Butter Battle Book. Argentina has Ushuaia, the “Southernmost City in the World”. Well, Chile, who is simply not to be outdone by Argentina, decided they would establish a city even further south than Ushuaia, taking the title away from their neighbor country. So, they created Puerto Williams. Unfortunately, Puerto Williams was not quite large enough to be considered a city, and was designated a “town” instead. Thus, Ushuaia and Argentina still hold claim to the southernmost CITY in the world, while Puerto Williams and Chile hold claim to the world’s southernmost TOWN. Men.
