Exploring Patagonia - Dique Florentino Ameghino - Trelew - Chubut Province

The Dique Florentino Ameghino is a Dam located 140 clics away from the city of Trelew. Its worth going there if you´re in Chubut.

built in 1943 as a Hidroelectric dam it contains the Chubut River. It has pretty nice panoramas that are a contrast with the arid Patagonian scenery available in the surroundings.

Happy New Year 2017

Exploring Patagonia - Museo Paleontoligico - Trelew - Chubut Province

The "Museo Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio" in Trelew is one of the must doos in a city that does´nt have that many attractions.

It is one of Argentina's largest palaeontological museums, very well set up with replicas of the biggest dinosaurs found in Patagonia.

It is quite well set up and costs less tha 10 bucks to get in. If you spend even a day in Trelew it will help you kill some time.

Ideal for religious,architecture and photography buffs, It is a night in which all the religious temples of Buenos Aires are open and can be visited and photographed freely. With guided tours and other amenities such as food and drink included.

I went to three this time which are from top to bottom, the Armenian Orthodox Cathedral, the Jewish temple Libertad, and the Catholic Maronite Cathedral.

Exploring Patagonia - Trelew - Chubut Province

The city of Trelew located in the southern province of Chubut is basically the most important city in the province, located some 30 clics away from the capital city Rawson, Trelew is one of those places that you may stop by for fuel or to spend the night, since most of Patagonia's highlights are in the wilderness.

Nevertheless it has some nice architecture to be visited, like the National Bank building and several museums.

The city was originally founded in the 18 hundreds by a group of welsh immigrants that set led in Patagonia.

It will be a certain stop on your way down the Argentine coast.

At the "48H Open House Buenos Aires 2016"

The greatest event for photography and architecture buffs in Buenos Aires, the $8hrs Open House Buenos Aires which held its 4th edition this year is the best way to visit and photograph buildings that no always open to the public eye.

Part of an international family of Open House cities and organised by cohabitar urbano which is a civil association that promotes integration among the city and its people.

There were over 50 buildings and homes spread around the city. I managed to do 3 on Saturday and two on Sunday, one of them being the Bencich buildings at Roque Saenz Peña and Florida, smack downtown and one of Buenos Aires iconic intersections.
All the visited were guided by professionals and were brief and concise.
I do recommend doing it next year if your in town.
