  • The ranch is open to the public from October 15 until March 31, except Christmas and new year the owner lives there year-round assisted by two persons more, due to his advanced age. Was declared monument historic national in 1999. As breeder of sheep leave exist in 1995 for its low profitability. The walk by all the stay is interesting (visit guided) has a Museum and laboratory for the study of birds and mammals marine southern very full. Is can eat in the restaurant of the place the food prepared for that day (is can choose). Always wear a pilotin since much of the tour is outdoors and if the time change...

  • It is attractive only because it is far away. It would never do. Very few things to see, and the only restaurant meal is a disgusting. Bad attention of the grooms and the guides not know nothing of what speak, have errors thick both historical as geographical.

  • Beautiful Estancia, is far from the public road, guided tour in English, possibility to have a bite to eat, unfortunately no sheep anymore. Also the maritime museum where research is done is worth it.

  • O lugar tem uma vista linda, onde se pode caminhar e fazer belas fotos. Recomendo nao ir de tenis, pois dependendo do passeio pode-se ter de andar pro trilhas.
