tl History tl

Villa La Angostura, a town dreamed of by pioneers.

By the end of 1900’s the first settlers came to this region. Most of them lived on agriculture and cattle farming, on a small scale. In order to communicate and stock up they had to go through long journeys by horse across the mountain range towards Chile, along a path which went round Lake Nahuel Huapi, by boat through the lake or by hydroplane.

On the 15th of May, 1932, the founding deed of Villa La Angostura took place together with the opening of the post and telegraph office, which was the first public service rendered to the community.
