  • It is a mountainous formation that alludes to a building with columns for your configuration. It is 27 km away from the Centre of Malargüe, beside the river of the same name. The landscape is very beautiful and is complemented with vegetation, the sky and the course of water that descends from the thaw. At the bottom of this formation is a campsite with a cafeteria.

  • Inexplicable
  • They must realise that to know it must pay $100. I didn't like this topic, because it shows there was a political settlement in this award. The place is very cute, but first you pay!
