Punta Arenas is the capital of XII Region, the southern-most city in Chile. The remote XII Region covers 17.5% of Chile's total area but contains less than 1% of Chile's population.

A visit here is required if you want to head to Puerto Natales for Torres del Paine trekking as flights from Santiago fly here and buses from Ushuaia, in Argentina, come here.

It is a pleasant and tranquil town, with a number of beautiful buildings around the main square Plaza Munoz Gamero.
