  • In the same property are two houses built by Don Carlos Gesell. Today is a fantastic forest reserve.

  • 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.
