Lago Epecuen, Carhue
(4.5/5 based on 220 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.

  • Landscape of contrasts: city that emerged when he lowered the water (there are still flooded parts) and the imaginary of what could have been a tourist so as it was Epecuén village life. Sadness of the stories of the people, and at once wonderful landscape from a horror movie!

  • Was a beautiful villa turistica, busy and when I get the challenge of man to nature, as always we lost that fight and the city was covered by water 31 years ago, then when they fell began to give up the buildings, the area's only spa can be reached with very high boots, if we go with shoes is not scrollable It's a very strong experience.

  • 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.
