  • Very well attended dream place. The goat is excellent. It is not cheap, it is very enjoyable. Beware of the climate. The rain is dangerous.

  • Beautiful place, interesting near Malargüe geological formation. You can go and it is easy to climb to the top. Beautiful view from the top.

  • It is an attractive Castle-shaped rock formation. For people that likes the legends and a bit of history can go and enjoy a good day at the campsite which is located in front. The road is very bad to go by car, is recommended to go on a high vehicle.

  • Bellisimo
  • Inexplicable
  • Very nice landscape. Can be reached by a gravel road that is passable by car. It's worth the visit. In the place you can camp or a meal at the restaurant.
