  • A walk through our Aboriginal roots, explained in perfect way by our Guide contacted in the same place (Miguel, a bonnet), which ideally drafted everything what can be detailed on a visit so exciting as dramatic for its historical content. It possesses at the foot of the same, a small but attractive fair craft, with affordable prices and public baths fully equipped, clean to perfection and very modern, as well as free.

  • It is a must-see place, which habiliata the visual domain of the entire Valley. It allows a precise control of the area. Reconstruction arqueologoica respects the meaning of that community, in order to have an idea of the political dynamics and socio economic of quilmes. I advise making the ascent with plenty of water and some bar cereal or nuts to climb to the top, and face down the opposite Wing. With included rest, it takes a two hours approximately. Good panoramic photos.!
