With its yellow gold and greenish trim and its squared bell tower, this church is an imposing presence in Punta Arenas’ downtown area. Built in 1892, it is lovely in its simplicity.

By catholic standards it is a bit plain. There are some nice stained glass decorations and the painting over the altar is quite impressive. Not very large or ornate, but right in the centre in the main square, so worth calling in as you visit...More

This cathedral in the City square is a small place to see and you wont take long to see. It is worth a visit as you usually pull up here in the bus. There is much more to see in the square nearby
