In the middle of the Llao Llao forest, you can find a collapsed building from mysterious origins, often rumored to be ruins left behind by escaped Nazis.  

It’s believed that many Nazi officers escaped to the in the city of Bariloche after the war. Myths persist that even Hitler himself made it to the city. Many popular theories suggest that the building was a Nazi bunker of sorts. 

Officially, the ruins are said to be the remains of an out-of-regulation hotel that was never finished. However, it’s not really clear what it was, who built it, when, and why it was demolished.

Its location overlooking the lake makes it a really enjoyable place to relish the surrounding landscape. 

Know Before You Go

The place can be easily found after a 20-minute walk in the forest or by car. Getting there by bus is a bit more difficult with the closest line stopping a little over 2 miles away.
