  • It is a private effort, and seems very serious with the information given. Good to spend an hour, with good information about geological evolution in Patagonia and indian tribes.

  • Too much writing, not enough photos and elements to interpret! Looks like it was put together by a high school student.
  • Is almost free, and you can enjoy the history
