Yea, cemetery and fun. Many of the tombs are delicately decorated and polished to resemble small temples. Do come and meander around if you're in Punta Arenas.

Everyone told us this was one of the most beautiful cementeries in the world and a must-do in Punta Arenas, but we were rather disappointed by the amount of people and the overall "beauty" of the setting.

Very interesting cemetery, just a bit out of town but an easy walk. Lots of elaborate gravestones and masoleums, definitely worth a stop in if you are in the area

It's a cemetery yes but you get to appreciate the history of PA by visiting Cementerio Municipal. All the different stories of the people of the world that made PA what it is today.

A seven block walk from the center of town. A very interesting cemetery with beautiful monuments and well kept grounds.

I suppose cemeteries are interesting depending upon who is entombed, like Evita at La Recoleta in Buenos Aires, but I generally avoid them. This one, I stumbled into while walking to find something else. It is on the edge of town, fairly well maintained, but to me a cemetery is not an attraction.

If you want to see unique head stones or should I say memorial buildings, this is the place. This memorial cemetery is like none I have ever seen. It runs for blocks and blocks with unique tombstones and memorial buildings. This is a must see in Punta Arenas!

A cemetery is a common place everywhere, even when well organised. The tombs and mausoleums are well cared for as are its streets and avenues and one can learn a little more about those who lived in this town, but a cemetery is always a cemetery...

When you enter the cementerio, turn left and discover the ancient children graves. At the end of this line you meet the small wall graves with all the memorablia inside. Amazing!!
