An industrial past turned into a tourist attraction.
The town of Liebig, in Entre Ríos, is a clear example that people can resignify themselves. Located less than 10 kilometers from the town of Colón, on the Uruguay River, until the mid-1980s, it hosted the second largest canned meat producer in the world. After the closure of the factory, it went from being a great industrial icon to becoming a tourist attraction that increasingly attracts more visitors.
The place treasures a history that is reflected in the facades of the buildings and in the stories of the 800 inhabitants that walk its streets. An interpretation center that allows to know the customs of the factory population, a museum, the typical colonial-era buildings that still stand, the Fishermen's Club, the Santa Rita cave, the remains of the producer and the Beautiful views of the landscapes of the Uruguay River are the main attractions of this walk.
A different town that is worth knowing in our passage through Entre Ríos.
