Hacienda San Antonio de Petrel was a Chilean hacienda located between Topocalma and Nilahue, in current Pichilemu, O'Higgins Region.[1]

It was created in 1611 by Bartolomé de Rojas y Puebla, who owned the terrains, and who later bought more lands nearby. San Antonio de Petrel's main activity that century was the animal breeding.[1]

In the following years, San Antonio de Petrel's income was generated by the production of leather, jerky, soles, tallow, cordovan, and animal breeding.[1]

San Antonio de Petrel is located 18 kilometres (11 mi) east of Pichilemu.[2] Its current owner is Francisco Javier Errázuriz Talavera.[3]
