Very close to the capital of San Luis, this exquisite tourist village unveils its beauty to be chosen by tourists as the ideal site to have a rest.
Only 17 km from the capital city of San Luis, on Provincial Route 18, lies the tourist village called Potrero de los Funes. This beautiful valley surrounded by mountain ranges where the first families of the area settled down, such as the Mirandas, the Muñoz de Aldanas and the Funes -who gave their name to this place- is ideal to have a rest while you enjoy its peaceble natural environment.
In order to reach this spot, it is necessary to drive along the winding road that crosses the Cóndores ravine, between granite walls, until you get to a beautiful panoramic sight of the water mirror framed by the Potrero de los Funes dam.
The village infrastructure and services offered to visitors of the province have been internationally categorized. Its characteristic Hotel Internacional, inns, guest houses, camping parks and its majestic retaining dam provide the appropriate environment for a well-deserved rest.
In the area, visitors may go on all kinds of excursions: recreational activities on the shores and waterfront, sport pejerrey and carp fishing, funny hiking excursions to Mount Valle de Piedra and Mount Cruz de Madera, or climbing excursions at the Cóndores ravine.
