  • I was in January in Gesell and wanted to know a little more about its history. When I get to the tour, I meet a beautiful forest, worth to be visited. Species of trees and native plants; a landscape to enjoy it. Unfortunately, I did not have a good impression of the tour around the houses. Received us a lady sitting behind a desk with this welcome: "Hello girls, the contribution bonus is $20. "Can take what you want to". But nobody we gave information on the history, the House, not even a pamphlet. Is bad the building State in which it is located; and the worst thing is that they use some rooms such as file, microwave and electric kettle in the "original cuisine"; not take much advantage of what was... It is interesting to go, but don't expect great things...

  • Nice place for a cloudy day. It tells you the origins of Villa Gesell. There are people that you can ask. It is about the life of Don Carlos Gesell.
