Built at the turn of the 20th century, Palacio Sara Braun was once the home of a powerful Portuguese trading family. Today, the building serves as one of the top historical attractions of the city. A large part of the building's appeal lies in its Neoclassical architecture, designed by French architect Numa Mayer. Walk through the residence to observe well-preserved furniture, paintings, and other artifacts from the time of its construction.

    Cute Museum, with good exposure of the Braun Menéndez House. Very educational, of course more material support to guide through the Museum.

    Do not trust the Chilean peso entry fee is USD 2. It is a relic of the era was the Ginza of the sea Strait of Magellan. The positive thing here is a private museum, so go to the terrace on the second floor. Greenhouse, and has the feeling of luxury.

    We went to have a few beers, the site seemed pleasant, decorated with a marine-style. Good, the selection of beers is the just, the dish that we call was fine but was not abundant, if you're of good food, I recommend that you go to another place, since the price is moderate to expensive. To pass the time is more than well.

    It is an encounter with the history of Punta Arenas and same Magellan. It is a very complete and very well-preserved Palace. We recommend your tour.

Where to stay in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas boasts a huge selection of hotel options within its bustling sprawl, which range from low-key restored manors and homes to modern lodges and high-rises packed with amenities. You'll find an array of mid-range accommodations in the city's downtown area, within a few blocks of the waterfront and river. This gives you easy access to many of the city's most popular attractions and places to visit. However, Punta Arenas features very few true budget accommodations due to the large tourist industry and huge influx of cruise ship passengers that frequent town.
