Laguna de los Padres, Mar del Plata

#2 of 195 in Outdoors in Province of Buenos Aires
Scenic Drive · Tourist Spot
To the west of Mar del Plata and east of Sierra de los Padres, Laguna de los Padres represents a small lake, historical site, and water sport destination. This lake's name can be linked back to the 17th century, when Jesuit Fathers worked to evangelize the area. Here you will find a variety of aquatic flora and regional shrubs. The lake hosted rowing events at the 1995 Pan American Games and 2006 South American Games and still attracts boating, rowing, and fishing enthausiasts. In addition to its natural wonder, this lake sits at the same site as a reconstruction of the Jesuit Mision of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, as well as a museum where José Hernández lived as a child.
