Epecuén: Founded in 1927, the village of "Villa Epecuén" was the most modern hydrothermal complex of Argentina and the most popular resort of that time. In the eighties, the level of the salt lake raised suddenly over 10 meters and flooded the entire village for over 20 years. Today, the water is gradually receding. The ruins have resurfaced to bring an apocalyptic landscape where petrified trees sadly dominate what once was a picturesque scenery. As we walk along the streets, feelings of rootlessness and painful memories of others engulf us. In 2014, Epecuén was recognized as historical, architectural and cultural heritage.
