  • A very nice corner with shops filled with souvenirs from El Calafate, with banks for fun pictures next to life-size gnomes. I can buy the jelly made from fruit that lends its name to the town, or take a coffee or chocolate with medialuna. Stays open at night in the heart of San Martin. Be sure to know.
