  • The forest, full of magic, elves and other celestial lives. With its story of love and devotion... nature at its highest State, than from its roots shares and expands. Carlos, its great architect, and his beautiful thoughts. A very disputed character. Carlos Gesell House has guided, and at times they use spaces near old parking lot and sometimes not.
