  • Site full of surprises: A Museum of an interesting architecture with a very good description of the life of the settlers when he lived in isolation; an archaeological site of stunning proportions, which with the help of the Guide ends interesting until the most apathetic of tourists and a set of research that found me a white elephant for the zone "laboratories". Interesting stop on the route from Coyhaique.

  • The first stop is La Escuela Museum, where you will be given a guide that will explain to wire and the history of this school (the first built in Villa Cerro Castillo), the villagers and their coexistence with the nearby volcano Hudson that accurately like clockwork erupts approximately every 20 years. The last two eruptions have been in 1971 and in 1991 but from 2011 waiting for the volcano, which is right beside the Cerro Castillo, come back to bite. After visiting this small but important building of the village, the same guide will accompany you even see the Cueva de las Manos (cave of the hands), so named because the rock walls, approximately 8,000 years ago, indigenous nomads they wanted to leave traces of their passage. Cost 1,000 pesos: just over 1 €. Don't forget to ask the guide your way to the trail is nearby. We walked into a slight incline for less than two hours, but if you visit the Museum in the morning you will have much more time and definitely worth it! From here you can admire in all its glory Cerro Castillo, beautiful landscapes!

  • about 5 kilometers south of Castle Hill, is the wall of hands, place the Tehuelche used as shelter in their journey following the courses of the rivers. Impressive and gives to reflect, since there are hundreds of hands printed on the rock.
