#5 of 6 in Historic Sites in Province of Neuquen
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.

    You can enter the area around the residence recorriendola only in auto (do not know if there is a possibility of entering to visit). It is historical because there was imprisoned for the President Isabel Martinez de Peron after being removed in 1976. You can visit the passage and then go to lunch at the restaurant of the port, highly recommended

Where to stay in Villa La Angostura

Villa La Angostura's increasing popularity with winter sports enthusiasts from distant corners of the world drives up hotel room prices at the height of the ski season in July and August. Summer (November to February) is equally popular here, and most single rooms book up months in advance. Budget travelers can take advantage of economical hostels or try one of the area's campgrounds--arguably the best way to stay close to Angostura's natural attractions.
