From here you can see the colorful houses, the strait of Magellan and many other things. It is very easy to reach.

Our city tour stopped at Cerro De La Cruz to take in the view of Punta Arenas and the Strait of Magellan. We had a good view of our cruise ship at anchor. You only need 5-10 minutes for photos.

Not spectacular but worth the walk and stairs for a good look out over the town, Tierra del Fuego, and strait.

Good walk and take your time to get to the top because the views get better and better plus interesting homes and colorful ones too

Go when it does not rain if possible: the view deserves to be seen correctly! A little climbing is needed but not exhausting

The walk up from the town centre gives a good impression of Punta Arenas and at the mirador a panoramic view is revealed. There were a few craft/souvenir stalls for those who have made the hike and then a gentle stroll back down to town.

I would argue about the reviews for this. It is an ok walk, with a good view of Punta Arenas and a little stall if you want to buy Ecuadorian items. You would do this if you were here but don't get too excited about...More

A short walk from the Plaza de Armas you get a good view over the colourful buidlings of Punta Arenas to the Magellan Strait.

Day was kind of overcast when we visited the Mirador but imagine it would be special on a sunny day.

By all means visit this hill for a view over the town but it is nothing special. Gentle short walk up the hill from the main square or any of the day tours will stop here.
