  • On the main avenue of the Capital it is a reference point not to be missed, surrounded by diagonal and craft fairs.

  • This centenary monument was permanently enchastrado with graffiti, political slogans, swear words, etc. The Administration found a happy solution. Implemented a drop of water permanente(por reciclado), on the walls of the monument. Now anyone can paint anything. Sometimes ingenuity surpasses the disrespectful.

  • It is the meeting point of the Neuquinos, is in a central square. which in turn is part of the set of squares where the annual gathering of artisans is made. There comes together from a March, until the meeting of young people on weekends. Nothing special in terms of design.

  • The Monumento Al General Jose De San Martin is a very important monument representing General San Martin who can be found in most plazas and parks throughout the Argentina Provinces. Back on Saturday, April 15, 2017, I had the opportunity to visit this monument and It is always a very nice site to see. Thank you.

Where to stay in Neuquen

Still relatively underdeveloped in terms of tourist-oriented infrastructure, Neuquen mostly offers lodgings suitable for business travelers and visitors staying a single night before moving on to Bariloche. Arguably the best choice for tourists on a budget, centrally located guesthouses provide decent rooms close to most major stores and restaurants. If you arrive without a reservation in hand, your best bet remain the city's hostels, catering to students and backpackers and offering private and shared rooms.
