  • an impressive work, is reached by a typical Patagonian road (LAS and jarillas) and suddenly a blue mirror, something worth seeing, both the reservoir and their village.

  • In the middle of the desert, we find this isolated landscape, which include two large very unique components. On the one hand: the great wall, nestled in the rock, which gives the feeling of semi-natural fortress, holding a huge mass of water that gives life to the other side of the landscape: a beautiful Green Valley, farms, a peaceful village, with gastronomic offers and varied accommodation. We visited on the way to Esquel, but if one is stopping in Madryn ideally devote the whole day to enjoy it much better.

  • We deviate from the road between Esquel and Puerto Madryn for the dam. The views are very picturesque and the village is small and quiet. We had lunch a rich lamb to the stake at a typical restaurant.
