    The view, the landscapes, the contact with the nature, wildlife etc, the incredible scenery, stunning, worth the difficulty of travel by road from 365 curves ". If you're going to make the ride, get off Mendoza in the direction of the Park, and to get to the final return for the Ruta 7. Not worth going back by the same way, the fatigue is extreme, the difficulty of driving is great; It's not for amateurs or who has little practice behind the wheel. It's really dangerous, a good part of the stretch is land with many stones. Requires calm, patience, plenty of time available and, no doubt, appropriate vehicle (pick up with integral traction). If it is snowing, it might not be the case of risk. But the view is really great.

    Advisable to do the road along route 52... The guided tour is from 15 pm, on the date that we were...

    It is a pity that so cute structure has been built and then abandoned. Even though it is careful, it is not suitable to be inhabited or will never work as a hotel, as it was.

    The place is charming... the hotel is closed and can only be visited on the outside, the Chapel and the beautiful gardens. There is a guided tour that gets you in the history of Villavicencio. Eat at the shelter are charming and rich but a bit excessive prices.

    Very nice space to the contact of the precordilleran nature. Data to take into account: the visit you can pay with debit or credit apart from the form cash and they offer without having to pay. Which elsewhere is not the case.
