Weather in July 2

by Wanderingscot

I´m new to this forum and have not managed to add a comment to my first question, hence the new post.

I just want to thank everyone for replying so quickly and giving me exactly the information I was looking for.

I guessed the place was wet and shivery at that period and have decided to go in the opposite direction instead - to the Atacama desert!

BTW, I live in São Paulo and if any of you ever have a travel question about it or Brazil I´ll be happy to help if I can.

Travel Tips for Punta Arenas

croatian roots

by willy_wonka

i had known through my mother and her stories, that there are many croatians who fled persecution through the ages, especially late 1800's through to the 1960's by going to south america. my mother's family had the chance to go to argentina also, but ended in australia. so i knew that there was a possible large community out there somewhere in south america. i had no idea though, that there would be such a huge concentration in a small city in the very south of this great earth of ours.

punta arenas is home to many many croats. some references state that around 50% of punta arenas' population of 150,000 are of croatian descent. i was amazed by this... heading into town straight from the airport, there is a monument to croatians. the street names are of croatian origin. walking around town i passed the 'sokol gymnasium', and the croatian club. the hostel i stayed in had pictures of the motherland on its walls.

to me this was amazing... and also special. while i am born and bred australian, i do have pride for the motherland. i enjoy seeing croatians doing great, just like my parents who came with nothing to the land of australia, and now have alot they can be proud of. here too, in the southern, sometimes inhospitable land of patagonia, croatians have flourished, made homes, and had a large hand in the creation of the city of punta arenas.

i guess this made me feel like a bit at 'home'. albeit a bloody cold home! lol :)

Jardin Bonsai Nativo

by globetrott

Dont miss to take a closer look at this interesting Bonsai-garden in the back of Palacio Jose Montes. It is a nice collection of about 20 trees that are obviously getting along quite well with the rough climate at the "end of the world"
No entrance-fee or other restrictions, just walk through the open gate to the back of the garden !
Palacio Jose Montes and the Bonsai Gardens are opposite of the Tourist-information-kiosk on Plaza Muñoz Gamero.

Magellan Statue

by MikeAtSea

A massive statue dedicated to Hernando de Magellanes the important explorer to the Magellan Straits that was donated by the important business man Jose Menendez in 1920 towers the main square. On the sides of the monument one can see the regions he explored, the Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia.

the cathedral of Punta Arenas

by globetrott

This is the cathedral of Punta Arenas, situated directely at Plaza Muñoz Gamero, the main square of Punta Arenas. Take a look inside this lovely church as well, the doors are open all day and photography is no problem there at all. Click on my extra - pictures in order to enlarge them and see some of the fine details of the interior of that church.

Blanchard Residence

by MikeAtSea

Another impressive mansion is the Blanchard Residence, built in 1907 as the residence of one of the partners in the Braun and Blanchard Company by architect Antoine Beaulier. Blanchard was the first to develop whaling in the Antarctic region and the South Shetland Islands.
