Punta Arenas is the southernmost sizeable city in Chile and is located on the Strait of Magellan. It is the gateway town to Southern Patagonia and Torres del Paine and the starting point for some Antarctic journeys. In the town's main square is a monument to Magellan himself who sailed through the region on his trip around the world.
