Enjoy Ecotourism and Farming Activities in chilean Patagonia: El Galpon, the new tourism center in Patagonia.

Enjoy watching typical farming activities in chilean patagonia. Sheep shearing demonstration. Taste de traditional "in the stick" roasted lamb.

Punta Arenas, Chile (PRWEB) September 3, 2005 -- Patagonia is known for its beauty and tradition, flavour and amazing landscapes. It is a pleasure to introduce you to El Galpon. Located in Punta Arenas, Southern chilean patagonia, it is a tourism center where traditional activities of a typical farm are demonstrated everyday.

El Galpon was established in 1920 as the Dairy of Bellavista Farm. Tomás Dick impulsed it in the 50’ s and currently, keeping its original structure we have transformed it into “El Galpón”, a get together place to enjoy Patagonia’s traditional cooking.

After the peak period poultry raising was begun, being the most important in the 70’ s. Today it’s “El Galpón de Esquila” where we show the traditional work over and over again.

El Galpon is aimed at cruiser tourism, organised tourism, parties, lectures and conferences with special bathrooms for handicapped people.

In this place, fine Chilean handicraft items such as sheep and llama woolen garments can be purchased and a regional music group which sings and dances shows the typical Chilean folklore.
