  • It is a beautiful forest reserve which is not exclusively native to this area, is the result of man. In the 20TH century Lussich developed this beautiful park, which over time became one of the major green reserves combining native species with others from various parts of the world. Again we could appreciate that it is still well maintained and cared. You should visit it, and if not known, is in a privileged site of Portezuelo (Solanas). It is very easy to reach since it is very convenient to reach.
