This may not seem like something that you want to do while on holiday but it will give you another glimpse of Punta Arenas history.
Cementerio Municipal is one of the prettiest cemetaries that I have ever visited.
As soon as you enter you will be impressed with the former wealth that was once in this area.
This is obvious by the unique mausoleums and elaborate tombstones.
There are also many old plots and newer crypts.

Address: Buines 949
Directions: 15 minute walk from the plaza.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
