A submarine worth seeing

Mendoza is a province that has us used to dazzle us with its beauties.

Mendoza is a province that has us accustomed to dazzle us with its beauties. In San Rafael, in the area of the Atuel Canyon, we can find captivating landscapes that fill our eyes and soul. In addition, there hides a detail that, now, takes on an even more valuable meaning. In the Valle Grande reservoir you can appreciate one of the most outstanding geological formations in the area. On Route 173 there is a rocky formation that emerges in the middle of the lake with the unmistakable shape of a submarine, and everyone who passes by takes the obligatory photo. But that submarine now pays tribute to another, which makes that photo cover itself with a new sense. Thanks to the initiative of Roberto Campos, a resident of the area, the Deliberative Council approved an ordinance that baptizes the "submarine" as "ARA San Juan", in homage to the crew of 44 missing sailors. "How can we not remember these missing heroes, and Valle Grande is a place that is visited by many people, that's why. What better place to do a tribute, also what Sanrafaelino would not want to do it and more when there is a son of this land, Hernan Rodriguez, among the victims," Roberto said about it. One more reason, then, to take a walk around this beautiful place.
