“Great introduction to the city when approaching from the sea”

Sentados Frente al Mar
Reviewed 29 May 2017

Although this sculpture looks rather naive when one is close up, the effect from further away is excellent. A very good memory image for the City

"Situated on the Ocean Front is surely the most famous monument of Puerto Montt. It is a sculpture of 10 meters of height, that is next to the coast in the center of the city. The sculpture, by Robinson Barría, was made to commemorate the 149 years of Puerto Montt and consists of a couple of lovers sitting on a bench, watching the Sine de Reloncaví, a gulf that gives birth to the Chilean Patagonia. The work was inspired by a famous song that tells the story of a couple sitting in front of the sea. Seated in front of the sea, it attracts the visitor's attention for its colors, its meaning and its size. It is one of the postcards of Puerto Montt and you can not leave without taking a picture with the picturesque couple."

So goes the Municipal description for this statue; Well, guess what, we did not get a photo, our tour bus driver refused to stop, too far to walk from the port area, and we were advised that, for personal safety reasons we should not walk in the area unless we were part of a tour group.

A pleasant walk from town around the harbour passing some pleasant colourful eating places en route.
This attraction appeared popular with local tourists who took their photos beside the icon in their dozens.
Well worth the walk (not that far) taking in the ambiance of this area at the same time.

The statue is popular with local folks, we saw several posing beside the statue. The location of the statue offers a very nice view of the bay.
