  • This cemetery is mentioned in the guides tourist with just reason. Is located to few blocks of the Center, is of dimension medium and has a beautiful design based in symmetrical avenues of cypresses carefully pruned. Inside there are funerary monuments which is part of the history of the city. Checks the cosmopolitan tradition of Punta Arenas. Surnames Croatian, Spanish, British, Italian, German and Arab can be read on the tombstones. Very well kept and clean, is a harmonious and worth knowing. It's a walk to make it completely on foot from the Centre, if the weather permits.
