“A truly amazing Chilean landmark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you think Ricoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires is impressive, you should check out his little brother in Punta Arenas which gives it a run for its money!!! The Cemeterio Municipal is impeccably maintained, with perfectly groomed cedar-like bushes strategically placed throughout the property and a wide range of tombs of famous people from the Punta Arenas area. I liked this cemetery better than Ricoleta - more scenic (with the trees), better maintained (no open coffins falling off shelves within the tombs!!!) and equally impressive in terms of the monuments. Highly recommend - this is a must see if you are visiting Punta Arenas!

“Fascinating place”

Beautiful grounds and land scaping , fasinating tombs and crypts. It is a few blocks from the museum which is also worth a visit

“Very interesting cemetery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

There are some very impressive mausoleums here that are worth checking out if you have some time to spare. Some are colourful and very large. Also a stark comparison between those huge ones and then then tiny coffins in a wall style part over to the side and back of the cemetery.
