Definition of HORN, CAPE
headland S Chile on Horn Island in Tierra del Fuego; southernmost point of S. America, at 55°59′S
Southern extremity of South America. Located on Horn Island in the southern Tierra del Fuego archipelago, it projects south into Drake Passage. It was named Hoorn for the birthplace of Dutch navigator Willem Schouten, who rounded it in 1616. Navigation of the rough waters around the cape is hazardous, and the climate is windy and cold year-round.
