  • For who likes history, it is a place that excites. The view is spectacular. The visit was part of the high peaks road which culminated in the Aconcagua Park, passing through the places which, in my view, have been exciting. I emphasize the ascent to Christ the Redeemer, much desired and significant place for Argentines and Chileans. A place of peace and brotherhood.

  • Only 25 kilometers of Uspallata, is about Brook Picheuta bridge, which was built by O'Higgins (the highest authority of the General captaincy of Chile at that time) as a route to the Viceroyalty of the Río de La Plata, and later used by Gral. San Martin as one of the routes to cross the cordillera of the Andes, and that's when it acquired historical importance in February 1817. It can be accessed by Route 7, where there is a narrow path and Earth. You park the car and walk a few meters up to the bridge. The visit takes maximum 20 minutes
