    The Gauchito Gil Legend

    by venteeocho Written Nov 30, 2005

    Favorite thing: In 1874, a police line catch and killed Antonio Gil in an ambush near Mercedes. The legend tells that before dying, he said to the policeman that shot him: ?you have an ill son, when you return to your house he is going to be healthy, although you killed me". When the police returned to his home, his son was cured; and that was the begining of an interminable sequence of miracles which are attributed to the Gauchito Gil. In his grave, (national route 123) there?s a cross with a red rag, which is one of the gaucho?s characteristics, which became his standard.

    Unforgettable vacations

    by venteeocho Written Nov 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Accede to the province by: National routes 12 and 14, as much from the north as from the south of the mesopotamic region. Through the interprovincial bridge "General Manuel Belgrano" from the Chaco. And through the International bridges: "Paso de los Libres -Uruguayana" (President A. P. Justo International bridge). And "Santo Tome - Sao Borjas” from Brasil. Also two daily regular flights to the airports of Corrientes and Resistencia (Chaco 25 km far away), connects the province with the rest of the country. The federal capital is 900km away, the waterfalls of Iguazu are 650km away, and the borders with Brazil and Uruguay 450km away.

    Fondest memory: Corrientes offer many and varied attractives to the tourists who visit the region all year. Has more of 750km of coasts on rivers and tame lagoons, a true paradise for the fishermen, white sand beaches extend to enjoy the quality of the sun. Crossing the small towns where the jesuítics missions were based, we can meet again with our history, surrounded in a dawn of spiritual and faith that only Corrientes can offer. Their magnificent carnivals full of music and color last all the summer, and contrast with the calm of the Esteros of Iberá where a rich variety of animals and plants can be appreciated.

    All the tradition is reflected on its ranches, that offer regional cavalcades and special dishes to its guests, adorned with rounds of mate (infusion), chipa (cheese cake) and chamamé music, a reflection of the joy and cordiality of correntinian people

    For that reason, Corrientes is naturally amused and allows to enjoy unforgettable vacations
