  • We were told "if they go to tip sands has to go to the cemetery" and it really is that it is a must visit, it is beautiful, the architecture, the sculptures that adorn the mausoleums, the ornamentation and above all the calm, it is not a dark and grim cemetery It's beautiful.

  • A quiet place, obviously. You can tell how well taken care of and that is appreciated. there are different trees and shapes, in addition to the resting place

  • Very calm and artistic cemetery. The trees are incredible.
  • Didn't know what to expect but every one recommended it. Only thing I'm bummed about is wishing I had more time as I did this in an hour before I had to leave...bad decision as I didn't get through even half of it. Beautiful place, rich history, and you could kill a half day here with ease.
  • I'm not really into cemeteries (who is?) But there is some interesting history here and creative photography opportunities. Worth a visit if you are near.
  • Such a pretty spot to visit! Nice for a walk in the afternoon.
  • A must see in Punta Arenas, beautiful graves with stunning Mausoleum. We spent almost 2 hours there.
