Landmark
Don't miss a visit to El Totem, a monument that honors the American-Indian tradition of erecting structures like this to commemorate village chiefs. German sculptor Pablo Hannemann designed the piece in 1977 as a tribute to the founder of Villa Gesell, Don Carlos Idhao Gesell, who watched the unveiling ceremony. Greeting visitors as they enter the city, the structure adorns a mythological thunderbird on the top.

  • It is a symbol, an icon. When he was put was the subject of the most delirious interpretations, because it had more to do with the Canadian Aboriginal who with Gesell. The Eagle, non-existent bird in our payments, rests on the bare of the founder who seems to sail on a sea full of fish. However both be located at the door of our people we cannot imagine us Villa Gesell without the totem. As not all things must have a because or because it is nice I love totem.
