Cape Horn Albatross Memorial Souvenier


Recommended Posts

Anyone know if you can get a replica of the Cape Horn Albatross Memorial Statue?  Something small enough to put on a mantle or table top?  Looked around Ushuaia prior to sailing past the Horn and memorial, but none of the shops I visited had any.  Been searching the net and can find lots of pictures or tee shirts etc., but haven't found what I want yet.  Thanks.

Yes, it is likely difficult to find souvenirs of the Cape Horn statue in Ushuaia, Argentina, as the statue is actually located in Chile. This is due to the ongoing political differences between the two countries.


We were in both ports-of-call, while on a cruise last month, and visited a number of souvenir stores in Punta Arenas, all which had Cape Horn souvenirs. 


Because we wanted something sturdy, but light weight, we purchased the following souvenir. It is made out of wood and is about 6 inches square.




It also separates into two pieces, which makes for easier handling.




We bought in from Roca Souvenirs. Their website seems to be non-functional right now, but they say they provide delivery, so maybe try writing them. Their address is:


Address: Pdte. Julio A.Roca 973, 6200000 Magallanes, Punta Arenas, Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena, Chile


It cost 10,000 Chilean Pesos.

Perfect, thank you very much!!!!!  Never thought of the unrest causing an issue.  Assumed it was closest to the monument so they would be there.  Will look around some more in that direction.  Thanks again😃
