Centro Civico, San Carlos de Bariloche

The symbol of the city, Centro Civico surprises many visitors with its Alpine-style architecture and fine views of Nahuel Huapi Lake. Made from distinctive greenish stone and dating back to 1940, the complex houses many of the city's important offices, such as police headquarters, a library, and the city council. The most popular part of the complex is the Francisco P. Moreno Museum of Patagonia, which displays everything from the natural to the cultural history of the region. The square in front of the complex is dominated by the statue of General Julio Argentino Roca, former president of Argentina.

  • Sit in the surrounding area and visit the square is a visit that should be made mandatory. The buildings are well-kept like square. The clock at 6 pm sounds and turning a few beautiful dolls all

  • Inevitable visits in Bariloche, you can see constructions typical of Bariloche, in stone and wood, there are the Town Hall and the library, and you can see the Lake nahuel huapi. There also are most of the events in the city.

  • In an attractive square by the architecture of the buildings surrounding it, and its location overlooking the Lake. The image is as an icon of the city. MAS alla, does not offer too much to do, so for the photo. There is a Museum of patagonia that do not visit and also the tourist information office.

Where to stay in San Carlos de Bariloche

Despite an abundance of economical lodgings, most budget-friendly options in Bariloche get fully booked well before the start of peak season. Hotels charge the highest rates during popular ski months (July and August), when you're least likely to find a cozy room without a reservation. Mid-range hotels near the town center remain the best option for most tourists, offering car rental and tour arrangements along with the usual amenities like free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and laundry service.
