Trip to Medanos Point. This cape side area was first discovered by Magallanes in 1520, during one of his many explorative expeditions through the Argentinean coast down to Tierra del Fuego, and it was such the impact its beauty had on them that they include outstanding remarks about it on their journals. This is a very special and cherished construction. It was built in France and transported and settled in Argentina between 1892-93.
We 'll return in the afternoon to Valeria del Mar for a relax afternoon in the woods, enjoying beach walks and time off.

Valeria del Mar, inbetween Pinamar and Carilo ..... Trip to Valeria del Mar to visit all the areas' lighthouses on the way, pasing by Villa Gessell from the road, we will stop to take photos from a distance of the Querand? lighthouse ...
Valeria del Mar is a perfect paradise like sea side town. Its beautiful pine and eucalyptus woods, a sort of unspoiled getaway, strategically located in between the two biggest lighthouse areas of the northern Atlantic coastline of Argentina.
This would be our base from which we'll go on day trips to the areas' lighthouses.

Touring in and around Buenos Aires,docks and building, as well as the River Plate's Martin Garcia Island and the South Atlantic sea coast for a 12 wonderful days of adventure and discovery....
Argentina's lighthouses are a wonderful trademark to this broad and beautiful land. It shouldn't be an other way for a "discovered" territory. It was one of the first constructions to be done when arriving to main land, in order to guide the upcoming travelers, these were rough and precarious, made out of wood and sometimes just a fire on the coast. As those initial ports began to transform into bigger and more important cities, as technology in terms of illumination evolved, these precarious lighthouses began to be transformed and converted into architectural icons, impressive lighthouses, that enlighten the shores of the "new" continent. Serving as important beacons to all sort of ships sailing the waters off the Atlantic coast.
