  • Located in the hills of mendoza, the place is very nice and has endless sources of fresh water. On the way there is a restaurant specializing in jamon crudo and chivito. Great to spend the day.

  • Vera Beautiful building, but closed for visitation. The only place we can visit are the gardens, which are nicer on the surroundings than on the reserve itself.
  • 😘😍 facinante
  • Beautiful view.
  • Beautiful and quiet place in the middle of the mountain. The hotel was closed in 1979, but its façade, its gardens and its history are really attractive. There are guided tours and admission is $150 or $100 (if resident of Mendoza). Cleaning and maintenance are impeccable. How much with buffet.

  • Very badly, they closed the gate to the 17: 30, a shame how Mendoza... A place so beautiful and so restricted, the time I spent many tourists became. From Mendoza are 60 km to then not show anything because the Lords close, I recommend that they go down a picture of Internet and not go
