Hosteleria San Pablo : you will still find this printed in older maps and the buildings are also still there, but the windows are broken and I also could not imagine, who would get there in order to go on vacation in the middle of nowhere. They had quite a good view of the beach and also of the ships-wreck of Desdemona : My pic was taken from above and the hosteleria is the row of 5 houses below and the ship is in a distance.
The wreck of Desdemona is more or less the only sight in San Pablo, that is not even a village, but rather a few houses and an old motel, that is not used anymore and most of its windows are broken.
You will see the ships-wreck of the Desdemona already a long time in the distance, but it takes some time,until you will find the best path to get there. In any case you have to walk the last 200 meters on the beach, through the muddy ground, but it was worth it.
See the size of that ship, when you click on my last pic and see my brother with his video-camera in comparison with the ship !
This is the "Townhall" of San Pablo and it obviously includes the police-station and it is the only building there with just a campingtrailer next to it. We did not see anybody there, but the flag of Argentina in front of the building.
When driving along the dust-road to San Pablo you will see a great and scenic landscape, with several narrow brooks, wild sheep and cows and even some guanakos - and when you are lucky you will not meet them, while they are trying to cross the street and running into your car ! We saw one crossing the road ahead of us and a group of 6 guanakos in the forest next to the street.
Just a few km before you will get to the ships-wreck of the Desdemona you will pass by this great beach on the Atlantic Ocean, there is gravel in the front of the main photo but in the back on the beach the sand gets a bit finer and the beach is also very flat. We found a big carpark there and only at this place we saw another car, obviously a local fisher.
We were walking on the beach and did search for some sea-shells to take home as a souvenir, but all of them were quite small !
Estancia Pirinaica is another village or farm that we passed by on our way to San Pablo and they had quite a lot of horses there on the meadows and also the houses looked really great from the distance, not like ordinary farmhouses, but rather like modern villas.
Estancia Rolito is the name of a small village or rather a large farm, that you will pass by while driving to San Pablo. There is a fence around the farm with quite a lot of small houses there and also a tiny church, but we did not have enough time to take a closer look, as the whole excursion from Ushuaia to San Pablo and back took us more than 13 hours.
Lenga-trees are typical for Tierra del Fuego / Fireland and you will find them at many places.Their leaves have a brim like a saw and when the tree gets older is is covered by some sort of a demi-parasit, that has the funny name "the beard of the grandfather" in the local language.
