Vilupulli Church

It is located in the district bearing the same name, on Isla Grande, right opposite the coast on a wild looking hill.

As far as its age is concerned, records give evidence of a small chapel in the early seventeenth century, ratified by later oral accounts that assure the work was paid with food. Its present location dates from the nineteenth century. Its tall slender tower stands out.

Its patron is Saint Anthony and its feast is on June 13.

Hiking in Patagonia

Hiking or walking is an activity practiced in all kinds of terrains and is not restricted to age, gender or physical fitness.
As in every task, there are various levels of difficulty, which can be surpassed gradually as experience is gained. The routes are divided into four types of difficulty: relaxed, medium, steady and difficult.

Golf in Patagonia

Among the various activities developed on Patagonian soil, the practice of golf has been gaining more and more strength in the last few years. Patagonia presents a great diversity, made up by magnificent sceneries for the development of this sport. Enjoying physical exercise and the delight of nature are combined in all its richness and variety.
