Laguna de los Padres, Mar del Plata

4.1
#1 of 26 in Outdoors in Mar del Plata
To the west of Mar del Plata and east of Sierra de los Padres, Laguna de los Padres represents a small lake, historical site, and water sport destination. This lake's name can be linked back to the 17th century, when Jesuit Fathers worked to evangelize the area. Here you will find a variety of aquatic flora and regional shrubs. The lake hosted rowing events at the 1995 Pan American Games and 2006 South American Games and still attracts boating, rowing, and fishing enthausiasts. In addition to its natural wonder, this lake sits at the same site as a reconstruction of the Jesuit Mision of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, as well as a museum where José Hernández lived as a child.

  • The place is very nice and spacious with many beautiful sites and full of birds, there is a Museum and the reduction of the pillar the roads are a little poceados ideal to go a day of week and find few people.

  • Taking advantage of the climate not accompanied to the beach, we made a getaway in this beautiful place. Boasts a small shopping very picturesque, with all amenities, including a restaurant with a terrace outdoors and a very nice view. We also went through the lagoon itself, but unfortunately it was closed and we could not access the Museum. A day trip as an alternative to other activities at Mardel.

  • The place is beautiful but it is BADLY managed. People guns on either side. There are dozens of trees burned in their bases. People dirty too and no one city

  • Beautiful place. Full of beautiful landscapes. To go with the family to spend the day or simply to explore the place. Ideal to run cross-country or do all-terrain circuit with bicycles. Recommended the Chapel and the Museum José Hernández.

  • Very careless. Many inaccessible parts. It's a shame because it is a beautiful place to spend the day

  • Splendid location for a full contact with nature. It is a lake with very attractive coastal accidents, and a good number of options. It has an interesting historical burden.
