Gonzales Videla station with gentoo penguins, Antarctic Peninsular

González Videla Base, on the Antarctic mainland's Waterboat Point in Paradise Bay, is named after Chilean President Gabriel González Videla, who in the 1940s became the first head of state of any nation to visit Antarctica. The station was active from 1951–58, and was reopened briefly in the early 1980s. It is now an "inactive" base, with fuel and supplies in storage in the buildings for emergency use, or in case the base were to be reactivated in the future. Occasional summer visits are made by Chilean parties and tourists.
