Walk Around Bariloche

Centro Civico, the Catedral, and Chocolate

Do a city walking tour. The alpine-style of using rocks and wood was used by architects in order to give Bariloche a traditional European look, one which authorities hoped would attract tourists to this part of Argentina. They were quite successful; since the arrival of the railroad and the opening of the civic center, the Cathedral, the Llao Llao Hotel, and other infrastructures built in the 1930s and 40s, tourism has continued to increase.
