  • Some of the 19th century immigrants to Punta Arenas really made good. This mansion is beautiful inside and gives a brilliant impression of a way of life that has disappeared for ever. 
  • Very well maintained home. Interesting to see how the decor of the period made it from Europe all the way to the end of the world. English guidebook and it was free. Can't beat that! 
  • Braun Menedez's mansion as it was when the family was living there. Fantastic architecture and furniture. Like traveling in time.
