Punta Arenas

Cemeteries · Specialty Museums · Landmarks
An erstwhile hub of the sheep wool industry, Punta Arenas has evolved into a gateway of sorts for hikers, cruise ship passengers, and adventure travelers heading out on the windswept lands of Chile's extreme southern reaches. Though practically on the edge of the world, Punta Arenas is an expansive urban center whose population boasts a surprising degree of ethnic diversity, including a large population ethnic Croats. Take a small tour of Punta Arenas to wander the city's busy streets and explore its array of churches, shops, squares, and museums, all set along the shoreline of the Strait of Magellan. Keep your eyes open near the water and you may even spot a local penguin clan. To find out how to plan a trip to Chile, use our trip itinerary maker.
