Get to know the best of Punta Arenas by taking this active and funny guided tour. From the port (if you are a cruise traveler) or from your hotel,we will walk a few blocks to reach the main square where the bronze statue of Ferdinand Magellan is. This is the right place if you like shopping too. There is a nice craft market in the square, surrounded by many European-style buildings. Our next walk will take us 15 minutes to get to the Cerro de la Cruz viewpoint to enjoy a great view of this colourful city, the famous Straits of Magellan, and Tierra del Fuego Island. While walking down the hill, our guide will introduce you the history of Punta Arenas, its foundation, how and why people arrived and settled in here, and after walking 20 minutes you will see at the General Cemetery how wealthy they were. Splendid marbled mausoleums and dozens of tall cypress trees make this an amazing place. If you are not tired, we can walk some streets down to the waterfront area. Optionally, before returning to the pier terminal or hotel, ask your guide to take you to the Salesian Museum. This place exhibits stuffed animals, maps of famous expeditions, samples of native flora, and even better, original Patagonian tribes’ belongings that were collected by the missionaries since the end of the 1800.
