|About Jose Nogueira -
in their own words:
Right in the middle of
downtown is located one of the oldest buildings of the entire Patagonia, the centenary old
mansion formerly owned by Don JosÚ Nogueira and Do˝a Sara Braun, two characters who
wrote the history of Patagonia . Don JosÚ Nogueira, of Portuguese origin and
a sailor by profession, was the most sucessful of the patagonian pioneers. He amassed a
grand fortune during the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1890, ordered the
contruction of a splendid mansion in the middle of downtown Punta Arenas.
The mansion became one of the most outstanding symbols of the city, and in 1982 it was
declared a National Monument, therefore prohibiting its modification. In 1992 was settled
as an small and exclusive hotel, which has the privilege of been chosen by his majesty the
king of Spain Juan Carlos de Borbon as his temporary residence during his visit to Punta
Arenas in 2004.

exquisitely decorated with all services and comfort of a grand hotel.
For its operation the hotel restored an old mansion that has been declared a National
Monument. The available spaces were adapted so that the structure of the building would
not be charger and therefore all of the rooms are not exactly the same. For this reason,
some rooms are bigger than others, but each one acquiring their own personality and
characteristics, and all having a high level of comfort. This specialty of Hotel Jose
Nogueira is extended to all of the guests each one receiving a completely personalized
attention, far from the service that usually surrounds us.

The first two contain the original furniture, lamps, and curtains of the mansion, and in
the Pergola you can dine enjoying the long summer days, whith day light until 11 PM. The
quality of the meals has received praised commentaries in specialized magazines. Here you
