Relax in Plaza Munoz Gamero
Settle in and admire the most impressive plaza in Punta Arenas, a focal point in the heart of the city. This grand square has bright flower beds, green leaves and tranquil, tree-lined paths. Seek out the statue of Hernando de Magallanes, the Portuguese explorer after whom the adjacent Magellan Strait is named. Kiss the base of the statue and, it is said, you will return to Patagonia. Now cross the street to admire baroque-grandiose mansions, chiefly the Palacio Sara Braun.
