It lies on an esplanade facing the sea, two hundred meters away from the shore. It is considered one of the most ancient, as its construction began in 1730 and it went through several refurbishing works.

Its patron is Saint Mary of Loreto.

The inside features Baroque style. An altarpiece located behind the altar and the pulpit decorated with woodworks stand out. The rustic floor was made completely by hand. Its state of preservation is quite good and it hosts mass and other religious activities.

Horseback Excursions

Those who wish to experiment something new may choose a horseback ride over mountains, amidst forests, along beaches or across streams with the whole family enjoying beautiful moments.
It is ideal to go on these excursions guided by the local experts and on docile Creole horses.
If you are going on a short excursion, it is not necessary that you can ride. A quick theoretical chat with the guide will be enough for you to get used to the reins.

Patagonia hot springs

Patagonia has a great deal of geographical faults with remarkable geothermal and volcanic activity. These features explain the existence of various sources with hot spring waters. The diversity existing in this area of South America ranges from warm water issuing from the ground, rich in minerals, to geysers with boiling water.
