Lago Epecuen, Carhue
(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Travel to the famous healing lagoon and see the deserted town claimed by its waters at Lago Epecuen. Long believed to have healing properties, the waters of the lagoon have been used in treatments since the early 19th century because of the mineral content of the water and its high salinity. In 1985, heavy rains caused the lagoon to swell, and water swallowed this small spa town. For 25 years the town was under water, but now that the water has receded you can see the eerie landscape. Using our custom trip planner, Carhue attractions like Lago Epecuen can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • If they go to Carhué, it is necessary to visit the ruins of the Villa Epecuén. Show us how can not challenge yourself to nature, when the water moves is inexorable. See what remains of a place that was a wonderful resort put goose bumps, but it is necessary to put your feet on the ground.

  • Surrealist landscape, appreciating the beauty of the Lake, with the sadness of the history of the place. Missed the sunset against the slaughterhouse.

  • A must-see is approaching the Lake Waterfront to traverse. From the embankment looks confused the horizon with the same Lake and from the shore the salt water take you to imagine elsewhere.
