Puerto Pirámides

Puerto Pirámides is the only urban center of Valdés Peninsula. It is surrounded by cliffs resembling pyramids and the waters are crystal clear.

Puerto Pirámides

This small village is located on the Peninsula de Valdés, 97 km. from the city of Puerto Madryn, on the small Bahía de Pirámides, in the Province of Chubut. Approximately two hundred people live there. Its surroundings are desertic, typical of the Atlantic Patagonia.

At the beginning of the 20th. century the town grew with salt extraction. Much time later, tourism became its main economic activity that shaped its present profile.
