Villa Las Estrellas is one of only two civilian settlements on Antarctica, the other being Esperanza. The town is located on King George Island, just off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, and it is part of the Chilean base Presidente Eduardo Frei.
The settlement's population ranges from 120 people in the summer to about 80 during the Antarctic winter. It is primarily a supply hub for different research bases around the continent.
