  • The main square of the city founded in 1848, by a community of Chileans from the Archipelago of Chiloè, At the time the square of the most important city commercially because of the Strait of Magellan was influenced by many Punta Arenas cultures, thanks to the its strategic location at the widest point of the Strait has quickly become a multicultural center populated by the most diverse people who arrived there mainly for reasons related to trade. With the opening of the Panama Canal Punta Arenas has lost interest in Europeans and has been renewed thanks to its relative proximity to Antarctica and the race to the South Pole.
