Andacollo is a village in northern Neuquino, which offers visitors a wide variety of options that combine history, culture and activities in contact with nature. Valleys, mountains and hills such as Huaraco or Sentinela, which surround the city, with beautiful hiking circuits or for mountain biking.
In this town the monument to the Bicentennial of the Patria and the Centenary of Andacollo was inaugurated in 2011. The work took two years of construction and whose execution was carried out by Santafesino sculptor Andrés Mirwarld. It is a sculptural group that symbolizes the feminine image of the Fatherland covered by an Argentine flag. His hands are extended towards the city of Andacollo and under it are two murals of the Bicentennial and Centennial.
The work, 18 meters high and is located on top of the Cañada de las Cabras hill. It is the largest sculpture ever built in the province, made entirely with materials from the area, and the highest one dedicated to the bicentennial of the homeland. Along with the sculpture Mirwald, who died in 2016, he joined crianceros, miners and first settlers of Andacollo, and four of them carry in andas Nuestra Señora de Luján , Patroness of Argentina.
Andacollo, in Quichua language means brilliant high in reference to the gold existing in the area. The town is part of the Neuquén Norte Tourist Corridor. In fact, the city began as a mining settlement, activity that is no longer performed on site.
