  • Good ride. I started by mast and wall where there was lots of plates of many places that, at that time, sent to their parishioners to fight for his country. Unfortunately many, are missing because they were stolen (bronze). Then we toured the grounds where it was built a monument with chains, symbolizing that joined Argentine barges and boats to block the passage river above. Very interesting. You need more care.

  • The place has a walking tour, easy to make that you will not bring the average time at each stop of the tour. At the end of the tour the famous chains and an incredible view are at the height of the river. This the possibility of paying $15 to go to a room to watch a video and tell you the story of forced return. This is optional because the entrance is free.

  • Very nice, excellent maintenance and cleanliness of the place. I was many years ago and I was surprised how well you found it now.
