As part of our Cultural Activities, we visit some historic sites in Bariloche. One of these takes place in the most important cultural area: Centro Civico surrounded by Town Hall (and clock tower), Main Police Station, Patagonian Museum, Public Library,  Sarmiento theater and an Art Gallerie.
Led by a local licenced guide, we stroll around the area learning about the history of Patagonia and Bariloche, after which we enjoy a delicious coffee or hot chocolate.
