  • It is a highly touted place in the city, but they do not allow to come by their own means, and tour service moves too far away to see.

  • Knowing the biography of Baron de Anchorena, we see a very special being who transcended his surroundings and lived intensely travelling the world and leaving a legacy that is particularly unique in the world.

  • The Park is closed until March and is not in that information on their website. We went down there and a local official informed us. A pity we missed the trip. One warning on the website.
