Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Sun): explore the different monuments and memorials at Cementerio Municipal, then pause for some photo ops at Monumento Al Ovejero, and then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at Palacio Sara Braun, make a trip to Plaza Munoz Gamero, then take a leisurely stroll along Costanera del Estrecho, then see the interesting displays at Nao Victoria Museo, and finally get outside with Strait of Magellan.
