Punta Arenas, Chile

Punta Arenas is the most prominent settlement on the Strait of Magellan and the capital of the Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile. It is lcoated at the southern end of mainland Chile, between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans on the Brunswick Peninsula.

The city centre features the imposing mansions of the sheep barons of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Palacio Sara Braun and several good museums. Local custom holds that visitors who rub the foot of the Magellan statue in the central Plaza de Armas will have good luck, and return again.

Situated nearby is Fuerte Bulnes, a replica of a wooden fort from 1843 and the Monumento Natural Los Pinguinos on Isla Magdalena, where you will find a colony of 60,000 Magellanic penguins.
