  • The view from the road is a lot of overlapping altars; at the same time; above; below. Altars everywhere, carved in stone by years of wind and rain. Beautiful place to make tracking and walking.

  • The altars was declared Area protected of the Chubut. It is a beautiful place located in the center of the province midway between the coast and the mountain range. I recommend the sandwich of prosciutto made with homemade bread prepared in the ACA service station. The landscape is beautiful and recommended for those who love nature and peace

  • Passing by the altars is not really a visit, it is rather go along national route 25 in the journey from esquel to trelew. It is a place that one always enjoys since the walls are always imposing sight. I do not think that it is a place that worth a visit specifically
