Monumento al Ovejero, Punta Arenas

Admire the simple artistry and homely message of Monumento al Ovejero, a sculpture that acts as a tribute to the agricultural heritage of the nation. Created by artist Francisco Campo Torrealba in 1944, the sculpture depicts 12 life-size figures in bronze. The scene is of a shepherd holding the reins of his horse that follows behind him, and a whip that guides the sheep huddled in front. Inspired by verses written by poet Joseph Grimaldi Acotto, the statue is a fitting monument to the agricultural and artistic heritage of Chile.

  • It is ideal for photo, take advantage of the occasion, auque played a large row photo, get the lens with some patience.

  • I do not think it worthwhile to go especially to see him. There's nothing special. Now if you go out there, it can be. But a special visit doesn't make much sense

  • Tipical place to visit un Punta Arenas
  • Nice place
  • This beatiful
  • Really wonderful site of postcards and forced selfie. Although there is no parking you can do it on streets or service station. It has magic and growing legend, which goes up to the horse in that monument remains in Punta Arenas. Others say that you get marriage here or will return someday. It could enlighten or improve the environment although not needed to shine by their fame.
