Out in the Argentine countryside sits Residencia Messidor, a small French-style castle designed by famed architect Alejandro Bustillo in 1942. Nestled within walking distance from Lake Huapi, the castle is surrounded by verdant forest. Presidents and dignitaries have stayed at the residence, which was originally commissioned by Sara Madero Demaría and later sold to the province. Though it remains closed to the public, you can drive a car around a small circuit for excellent views and photo ops.

  • It is a must-see for those interested in the history of our country. It is not allowed to stop on the way, and should circulate at a speed of 20 km E a pity that it cannot go down and see it. The view is wonderful.

  • Nice Castle, very well maintained. Beautiful setting and good view of the Lake. A shame that they do not let you stop, the car can not be halted.
