The Patagonia of Los Antiguos
The Ancients are one of the first races to populate the Earth according to Lovecraft in the story “In the Mountains of Madness”. That is why when the visitor comes up to this farm oasis located on the shores of Lake Buenos Aires seems to reach paradise. In Los Antiguos you can go trekking to get to see unusual places or to the incredible cave paintings of the Cueva de las Manos or the Wonderful Marble Chapels.
Los Antiguos is located 3 km from the border with Chile and 1029 km north of Rio Gallegos, on the edge of the second largest lake in South America.
The cross wind that waves the waters of Buenos Aires is retained by poplars that, as guardians, protect the orchards of cherries, strawberries, apples, apricots and peaches. Before the arrival of the white man, the natives called him i-keu-khon, which means something like “Place of the Elders” in language Tehuelches.
Between August 8 and 15, 2011, Chile’s Hudson Volcano vomited more than 2,000 tons of volcanic ash that covered the town. A traumatic experience is always negative, however, what happens from it depends on each person. And that’s how those ashes, collected by men, are part of the DNA of the place. They shaped a being that, like the Phoenix, is reborn from the fire much stronger, bigger, wiser. An example that inspires the more than 6,000 inhabitants of Los Antiguos.
The best time to travel to Los Antiguos is between October and April. In summer, Lake Buenos Aires is warm enough to swim. During the first week of January the Cherry Festival takes place, with jockeys and musical shows. It is advisable to book accommodation in advance because the place is full of visitors.
