  • Take my nephew to learn the history of Gesell in winter break where in Gesell there are many activities to do and with 12 years stuck, he met the inventions of the founder of the city, and I'm very surprised with your home.

  • Important information about the origin of Villa Gesell. Part of the Argentina story about immigrants and visionaries. It fills me with pride. God wants to continue keeping this place. The forest is fantastic!. Recommendation: Choose the guided tour.

  • It is a good alternative to know more about the beginnings of the city, but is rather austere and improvised.
