In the province of La Pampa , the flat horizon is a challenge to discovery. The traveler squints his eyes and tries to decipher that little black and far point, which looks out after kilometers and kilometers of pastures in the burning morning. A cow, a horse, a pole? From his chair, that vain attempt to recognize the silhouette is a simple game, but also a seasoning to achieve a dream, relaxing state. The rest of the seasonings arrive in the afternoon: a review of country tasks, a roast with leather washed down with red, a short horseback ride and a tea with handmade cakes.
The province of La Pampa is the one that displays before the visitor multiple experiences such as those described. Spending the day or staying in pampean estancias is an unforgettable and enriching experience, an excellent proposal to get in touch with the deepest telluric roots. Creole or European influence, it is hospitality that characterizes all these properties.
Tourism in stays is a product demanded by those looking for a change of environment; an unpolluted space; an uncrowded place; an approach to nature, the traditional way of life and contact with local people.
Distributed in different parts of the province, the rural establishments invite tourists to spend different days in the vastness of the plain with splendid sunrises and unique and unforgettable sunsets. Travellers' preference for alternative agrotourism and estancia tourism will grow postpandemic, which is why La Pampa is constantly preparing to receive this new demand. The estancias in the province open their doors to tourists and invite them to share the natural and cultural environment through activities that contain a high level of experience.
In turn, in recent years rural tourism has been increasingly developing as an activity that gained ground in local and regional economies. In this way, it shapes a new form of work, known as non-agricultural rural employment, and generates links with industry, trade and other services, which contribute to the consolidation of development processes. That is, this project is not only involved with the activity but also with those services that the region can offer, combining with local hotels and gastronomy, among other activities related to recreation.
There is a multiplicity of pampean sites with a hierarchical offer of rural tourism. Among them are:
• Villaverde: This is the first pampean tourist stay. A historical site and ecological reserve recognized by the Ministry of Tourism of the Nation and declared of Cultural Tourist Interest by the Senate of the Nation. The main house has 30 parked hectares and en suite rooms. As a country family, the place offers a whole concept of rural life, associated with peace, customs and typical meals made with products from their farm. The estancia was a Mapuche settlement and has still standing the Huitrú Fortin, a military reserve dating from 1879, declared of National Tourist Interest. It offers bird watching, stables, vintage carriages, rural museum, art gallery and officially recognized educational programs. It is five minutes from the center of Santa Rosa.

The painter's world opens up when he enters Antonio Ortiz Echagüe's Atelier Museum, which introduces the visitor to another era, exhibiting from characters of the European courts to the most particular individuals embedded in his daily life in the countryside.

Tasty typical dishes such as chivitos, piglets, empanadas, lambs, roast with leather, deer and wild boar loins, chacinados, pickles, cakes and fried cakes are part of traditional pampean cuisine. Spanish carbonates, Italian pasta and Russian and German delicacies are also essential.
