  • Beautiful place a very particular cemetery by its shrubs and trees a spiritual place can not miss

  • Without a doubt, it is not the typical cemetery you can find in Chile, I would stress its always well manicured trees and corridors, "a warm, much peace and quiet atmosphere". Recommended for a short visit, it is very close to the city centre, can be llegra walking from the Center, or in any public means of transport.

  • I've been several times in Pta Arenas, but never went to the cemetery. Well nice is with its mausoleums and avenues with trees. Well recommended
