El Totem, Villa Gesell

#10 of 12 in Things to do in Villa Gesell
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. Plan my day in Villa Gesell using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • It is more than anything for the photo, this income by 3 to Gesell, rather austere in terms of decoration and presentation! but it is not that they not charge for a photo! so okay.

  • Very picturesque, the guys enjoy the typical photo at the entrance of Villa Gesell. If you go by Gesell, can not ignore the TOTEM!
