Overview



Spend the day living the Patagonia Experience!

Punta Arenas, founded in 1848 at the shores of the Magellan Strait, is definitely a town with "European" character. Sheep breeding, oil and chemical factories and fishery are the main sources of income. Museums and visits to working farms with a plentiful barbecue lunch are only some of the additional attractions offered by the southernmost continental town of South America.

Your sightseeing tour will begin with a visit to the observation point, La Cruz Hill, for a panoramic view over the city, Tierra del Fuego and the Straits of Magellan. Then you are on to the Regional Museum, maintained by Salesian friars. View images of scenes from the early days of Patagonia, exhibits of Patagonia's flora and fauna, and exclusive relics of the folklore and handicraft of native Indian tribes such as the Yaganes, Onas and Alacalufes. Your next stop will be the beautifully landscaped cemetery, where you can admire the splendid mausoleums of pioneer families as well as a gravestone where the last Onas, extinct Fireland Indians, were buried.

Now you are on to the open-air Patagonian Institute, home to a collection of antique local cars and replicas of pioneer houses. The exhibits here also include historical pictures of Punta Arenas dating back to 1905. Driving back to the town center, your next stop will be at the Plaza de Armas Square where you can view and photograph the Hernando de Magallanes Monument or browse at the souvenir stalls.

You will now make your way out to a typical farm, located only 3 miles from Punta Arenas. This typical Magellan farm belongs to a family of pioneers of the region, and is very interesting in light of its close proximity to modern urbanity. Visit the Main House and all of the installations of this farm, feeling the Patagonic History. Your tour finishes with a lamb barbecue at the typical "house" restaurant at the farm.
