Nestled within walking distance from Lake Huapi, the castle is surrounded by verdant forest. Presidents and dignitaries have stayed at the residence, which was originally commissioned by Sara Madero DemarĂ­a and later sold to the province. Though it remains closed to the public, you can drive a car around a small circuit for excellent views and photo ops.
