[STC00393] The Strait of Magellan, known in Spanish as ‘Estrecho de Magallanes,’ is a channel of water at the tip of South America connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
The length of the Strait is approximately 550 kilometers, the majority of which lies within Chilean territory.
The Strait of Magellan is named for Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who, in 1520, became the first European explorer to sail through the channel.
Even though the development of the Panama Canal in 1914 rendered it less strategic for international trade, Argentina and Chile continue to make frequent use of the Strait of Magellan.
