The Patagonia has a vast landscape of rugged coastlines visited by whales, dreamy lakes and valleys full of charm. The imposing Andean mountain range accompanies throughout this region to this landscape of the south and its architecture .
Just as the City of Buenos Aires has been compared with European cities, tourist cities of the Patagonia show marked alpine reminiscences. Another unequivocal proof of how twentieth century immigration was an indelible European imprint on the architecture of the different regions of Argentina .
Patagonia's own architectural style emerged from the fusion of European materials and techniques, and premises of modern architecture. To the mad e ra glass, concrete and sheet metal were added to it. The gable roofs, so alpine, replicated to let the water from the drizzles and snowfall Patagonian slipping to the ground.
Born in 1972 in the coastal town of Port San Julian in order to preserve the historical and natural heritage of the area. This consists of a Magellanic style housing from the 30s and has a privileged view of the bay santacruceña.
There were preserved pieces of historical value, archaeological , anthropological, paleontological and collections of everyday objects of the ancient inhabitants of the place. To that great heritage, paintings are added and sculptures of renowned artists.
The spaces of greatest interest were, at the time, those referred to remains of the settlement “Nueva Colonia Floridablanca”. This was part of a Spanish crown project that aimed to eternalize its control over the patagonian coast . Also the “Pioneer's Room” —memory of the first years of the locality— and the” Luisa Gimata Room” with objects made by aborigines .
In another room, it stands out the wood of “La Santiago”, which was found in exactly the same place where, according to the chronicles, the ship was shipwrecked. This was donated for conservation and exhibition. In addition, you can observe in this room objects belonging to old neighbors and highlights of Puerto San Julián.
