Our guide will take us to explore Puerto Saavedra, in a journey through the historical sites of the earthquake of 1960, one of the strongest earthquakes in history. A cataclysm that lasted more than 10 minutes and that was followed by a tsunami that changed the landscape of the place forever.

Walk through Puerto Saavedra on a trip through the tourist and historical sites that were left behind by the worst earthquake and tsunami in Chile's history. Go through the rural sector until reaching Puente Budi (Pu Budi sector), which will allow us to go inside Huapi Islan. Through this road, we will reach Cerro la Mesa, a place where, for the 1960 earthquake, the Mapuches sacrificed a kid in order to calm the waters. We will continue this journey visiting different Mapuche initiatives, among them the Millaray gastronomical center, where a typical lunch is possible, as well as buying crafts.

We will go through Puaucho where, in 1849, the Joven Daniel steam sunk, and later on will go to Puerto Dominguez, a town that is born as a colonization industry. On our return to Puerto Saavedra, we will be able to see the ruins of the Duhalde colonial family's houses.

Join us on a journey through the stories of a place, rebuilt by the hand of its inhabitants.
