Well south of the province of Córdoba, is the General Roca department. It is the one that unites us with three sister provinces: Buenos Aires , San Luis and La Pampa. Its most inhabited locality and therefore the best known is Huinca Renancó. What we're going to talk about in this note, telling you curiosities and hidden paradises. His name has a special origin. It comes from the Mapuche language words: “Wingka Rünganko”. What do they mean:
-Wingka: 'white man'
-Rüngan: 'make a well, 'dig the land'
- Ko: 'water'
The Spanish translation would be something like “well de agua del cristiano”. Bad tongues tell, that this name was chosen by the original peoples who inhabited the territory at the time when the conquerors arrived. Since these were the ones in charge of building a well to supply water, because the area was extremely inhospitable for newcomers .
This town was formally inaugurated on December 1, 1901. However, there were already civilizations and culture before their national recognition. This date is iconic for this paradise , as it was the time when the railway was installed. For the time being, this meant a central fact in the development of each regional economy. Currently, although the roads are no longer the protagonists of the activity in the area, they are a symbol of history. That's why they consolidated itself as a tourist site.
Some of the most striking points in Huinca Renancó are the Parish of Nuestra Señora del Carmen , the Main Square and the Building of the Municipal Palace . This is the central point of the city, where the tourist attractions are concentrated, offering us a bit of the history of these lands.
An essential point of this place, where you can breathe pure history is the Railway Station. In the process of development of our Nation and the corners of the country, the arrival of the railway was a key milestone . That is why each locality preserves on train tracks or stations, spaces valued for their great symbolic load. In the case of this locality, all the elements are in excellent state of conservation . Among them, its platforms, the galleries, the ticket office, the sign booth and many more, and we tried to leave everything in its original place , to revive that past glorious in the most credible way possible. Within this property, which today forms one of the key tourist attractions , are the old locomotives that traveled these roads.
Like almost all towns in Argentina, Huinca Renancó keeps its main attractions in its central square. In the center of the city is this green and leafy property, around which local businesses and services are located. But, in addition, a parish worthy of being visited. This ancient construction boasts a side tower with a bell tower and a truly admirable dome . While it is simple, it highlights aspects of an attractive architecture that goes back to centuries past.
This “crystal clear water well” is the king among many Córdoba cities . Its proximity to the province of La Pampa makes it a strategic point to generate interprovincial trips. In addition, not only its striking architecture calls visitors. So do the numerous festivities that are held in the area. For example, the National Fair of Handicrafts and Popular Music on the platforms of the Railway Station. Or the Livestock, Agricultural, Industrial and Commercial Exhibition that invites producers, but also the general public. These meetings invite visitors from all over the world , with presentations, shows and a varied range of regional meals.
