Punta Arenas is the southernmost city in the world.
Seems that the brightly coloured roofs have to make up for the rough climate…

    Oh no it isn’t. the southern most city in the world is Ushuaia!

    Well, I think it depends on the definition of “city”. Punta Arenas is not quite as much in the South as Ushuaia, but has more inhabitants.
    Actually, officially now neither Ushaia nor Punta Arenas can claim the title - folowing an agreement between Argentina and Chile, it now goes to Puerto Williams which is further South then both the other towns but only has 2500 inhabitants…

    Personally, I’d call a place of that size a village
