We visited as part of a tour group, unfortunately many other tour groups were present and with little crowd control it was difficult to hear our guide speak. Nevertheless the building and contents are impressive, opulent in their era and giving a glimpse of Punta...More

You can see both upstairs and downstairs. It is quite grand upstairs. It is well looked after, but there are some walls showing slight water? damage. A look around would take no more than an hour

Its right in the town centre, opposite the square. There is a minor charge to visit and they control the numbers. Sara Brauns old home has its value in that its well maintained but contains a lot of local history. In the back area is...More

Wealthy woman's mansion with stunning woodwork and stained glass dome above a 2-story atrium. Nice views of the mountain range from 2nd floor. Walk up and ring the front doorbell to gain entrance. Nice craft market right across the street at the park.

This beautiful building on the town's main square, now a museum, is partially restored and is worth a visit. It is the original mansion of wealthy Sara Braun, an important turn of the century resident.

There isn’t much to do for an afternoon in Punta Arenas, so this is a good choice. You have to ring the bell to get let in and then buy a ticket, but inside is a nicely appointed historic house. There is a small attached...More

A lovely late 19th century historic house adjacent to the Plaza de Armes is untouched by time. There are only a few rooms to see both downstairs and upstairs, and will only take about 15 minutes. Entry is 1000 peso or you can pay $2...More

This is a beautiful mansion and one can only admire the achievements of the 12-year-old immigrant from the Baltics who ended up in this very grand villa. Don't miss the Shakleton-related prints and paintings in the bar.
