It's true that the concept of visiting a necropolis might be strange to people, but this is a place you cannot miss for a quiet stroll in the afternoon, admiring the beautiful architecture. I'd just ask you to be respectful, since there's people mourning, and I have seen tourists even take pictures of funerals, which I find distasteful, to say... More

Beautifully kept place...very interesting tombs and well shaped trees / hedges. Good photography. It was unclear to me whether there was a charge as no prices were displayed so I just walked in. I wish I'd had more time. This was certainly a highlight of my visit to Punta Arenas.

We arrived here as part of a tour group. The guide was surprised that the cemetery had suddenly started charging an entry fee. It took some time, while we waited in cold windy weather, for the office to figure out HOW to collect the fee. The cemetery is beautiful, prettier than Recoleto in Buenos Aires, but there is no information... More

The Cemetery is a peaceful place and it is interesting to see the variety of nationalities and the size of the mausoleums--reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of the history of Punta Arenas.

I had no expectations when I walked to the cemetery. I had been to the famous Pere Lachaise (Chopin, Jim Morrison, etc.) in Paris, so I was amazed at the beauty and elaborate burial sites. The sculpted rows of trees provide divisions across the cemetery. I cannot provide the words to describe how they celebrate/remember their dead. It is something... More

I know that some people are creeped out by visiting cemeteries but think of this place more as a history lesson and architectural experience. But, explore with respect as this is an active cemetery and there are lots of flower stands and memorial shops right outside. I cannot say that I knew too much about the history of the region...

I sometimes visit cemeteries when doing city tours and as this is one of the more praised attractions in Punta Arenas I went to this one as well. It is interresting, but I expected more. It is a bit dense and unless you have deeper knowledge it will be tough for you to understand who is buried here. You are... More

It's def an easy stop in if your staying in PA. I didn't spend too long there since it is a cemetery and I personally don't want to spend too much time there. You can definitely tell who's families had money is this city as their plot will tell that story clearly. There are varying types of burial sites in... More

We moseyed through here on our way into town and it's quite pleasant as far as cemeteries go. There are some large and impressive mausoleums. Great topiary too...
