  • A small town, very quiet, nice and comfortable room, the chilly climate, favoring all over the place. Is a city simplis, without luxury hotels or something.

  • Walked this path from the airport of Calafate, the Patagonian landscape is the desert vastness, didn't see anything green stones, ochre and grey, by the time of the year. The parador La Leona is the characteristic building imagined and painted for this territory. Landscape frame saws scratched by glacial action, Silver Lake and cross-country mountain ranges and peaks illuminated by sunset.
