Port of call, Punta Arenas, is Chilean Patagonia's largest and most important city situated at the foot of the Andes in the province of Magallanes which includes Tierra del Fuego Island and is correctly termed "Chilean Patagonia." The atmosphere feels like turn-of-the century Europe.
Before the Panama Canal opened, the city was a booming port of call at the tip of South America. Seems to be the most prosperous city we visited in the Patagonian region. Nice walking city with good views. The Magallanes Regional Museum is an interesting trip back in time to the early Indian settlers and missionaries.
The Sara Braum museum is housed in a beautiful French style building. It has some nice design and artwork. Each museum cost about US$4 each and can be visited in about an hour. We found a local coffee shop for espresso. The very smoky atmosphere was reminiscent of a European coffee house.
