Touch or kiss the foot of this native indian of Patagonia and you will return to this end of the world.


In Punta Arenas you will find many luxury-palaces of the Menendez - Braun - dynasty...

...and even their tombs are very special !

    I heard something on TV about this place some days ago and decided to look it up on VT because the name sounds so beautiful. Your great page has shown me a lot about it - thank you!

    Great page, as always! Yes, cruising in Patagonia (or Greece, or everywhere) is great until you know such news as Giorgis shipwreck! I would touch or even kiss the foot of that native indian only not to find myself in such situation.

    This is the last place where I would expect to see a Bonsai garden! Stray dogs as day labourers, now I haven't heard of that before :)

    Enjoyed my virtual tour to the end of the Earth = nice that you stayed in the same place as Sara Braun :) I did like the transport tip of the far travelled motor home

    The most extreme inhabited places of the world both in the North and in the South seem to be far more civilized than most of the world between them...

    PA looks like a very enjoyable stop-over on your cruise! Lots of very interesting architecture & I like the sound of the 'Museo Naval y Maritimo'! Hey, Regina has felt like the 'end of the world' this winter - why aren't I living in a Palacio Sara Braun?!

    Great tips about a place far, far away! I had no idea there were so many museums and palaces in Punta Arenas!
