A jewel of northern Patagonia
San Carlos de Bariloche is by far the most famous tourist center in northern Argentine Patagonia. It is the starting point to the beautiful Nahuel Huapi National Park full of mountains and lakes. The classic itinerary is about three days, but you will see only the most famous places around Bariloche. You can stay here almost indefinitely and there is still something to discover
Centro Civico in Bariloche
Bariloche is really a place designed mainly for tourists. The only monument is the local central square „Centro Civico“ surrounded by beautiful buildings from 1940, which later became a protected national monument. In the middle of the square is a statue of General Roc (former Argentine president), who is obviously not much in love with the original inhabitants of Mapuchova.
City Hall in Bariloche
The dominant feature of the square is the local town hall with a tower
Lake Nahuel Huapi
The city lies on the edge of the huge Nahuel Huapi Lake, after which the national park is named, which surrounds the city from practically all sides. On the shores of the lake you can spend a lot of time watching the weather change over the surrounding mountains
