Patagonia, August 18 2018


Located near the confluence of the Neuquén and Negro rivers, only 5 km. from the city of Neuquén, this town has 70,000 inhabitants.

Plaza San MartínIt was founded by General Lorenzo Vintter in 1881, who ordered the establishment of a fortress called Confluencia. Later the current name was imposed in tribute to César Cipolletti, one of the precursors of the study of the irrigation system of the Negro River.

The city grew thanks to its strategic location and the wealth of its lands, as in the whole region, for the cultivation of fruits, especially apples and pears.

Together with General Roca they are the largest cities in the Upper Valley of the Negro River.

Today is a thriving urban center that offers us sites of great interest.

Do not miss the Carlos Ameghino Museum dedicated to regional history and paleontology. You will be amazed with the head of an Avelisaurus, Titanosaur eggs and even a shell of Gliptodonte, all found in the area.

Fortín Primera DivisiónThere is another historical site with reference to the Campamento del Desierto and the Fortín Primera División.

And if you want to see what this city was at the beginning of the century, be sure to visit the Peuser Mansion, a beautiful house in front of the train station.

Due to the importance of fruit growing in this Patagonian area, it is essential to visit Tres Ases, packing and exporting fruit. Here they are washed and sorted for the domestic market and for export.

A few kilometers from the center you will enjoy the nature offered by the Jordan River on the Black River. There is a campsite there and the possibility of fishing, water sports and bathing in the clean waters of the river.
