Esteros de Ibera

Reviewed By Empanadita - Buenos Aires

Hurry up and visit this place! If the government does not continue to protect this area the species in it are in danger. This is a spectacular water reservation and the people at Colonia C. Pellegrini show a great zeal to protect it. Mammals, birds, fishes of all sort inhabit the lands and waters of the Laguna Ibera.

Costanera de Corrientes

Reviewed By RicardoRabinovich - Buenos Aires

Nice views of Corrientes City coastline are displayed as you walk from the Port to the Bridge or vice-versa. Not recommendable as a night alternative. In some corners, you may find not extremely pleasant little gangs. Better look the distant sights and not the closer views of the shore, lest you want to enjoy garbage landscapes. Lots of people fishing, and not a few of them seem to be doing it not as a sport, but in order to eat. Avoid noon, for heat may be cooking. And don`t forget your hat!

Puente General Manuel Belgrano

Reviewed By RicardoRabinovich - Buenos Aires

In its moment, and for Argentinean reality, this bridge must have been imposing. It`s huge indeed, and features very nice views of Corrientes City and the Paraná river. Sometimes, specially in rush hours, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy this landscapes, because cars run at a walking man's speed. Repairs are permanently in course, and incredibly this enormous structure was built only with two trails, one for each way. So, knots are frequent. But well, let's acknowledge that there are worst places to be stuck!

Parroquia Santisima Cruz de los Milagros

Reviewed By SAbrinaHeinzen - Cascavel, PR

Gente, eu adorei conhecer essa igreja! Ela é linda e tem uma história (ou estória - não se sabe) em relação à um incêndio que ocorreu há tempos atrás e que a única coisa que não pegou fogo foi a cruz que lá havia... segundo os moradores da cidade, é uma lenda, algo que contam, mas não se sabe se realmente aconteceu. Anyway... Dentro dela tem um altar ou podemos chamar de escultura, uma pintura, não sei - fantástico, parece em 3D. A entrada eu achei super charmosa, assim como toda a sua volta. Gostei muito.

Parroquia Nuestra Senora de la Merced

Reviewed By Msdj87 - Corrientes, Argentina

Ubicada en el Casco Histórico, frente a la Plaza 25 de Mayo, la Iglesia es Monumento Histórico Provincial desde 1957 y Nacional desde 1989.
Cuenta con una sola nave en la que se encuentra una serie de retablos menores de madera tallada a mano con incrustaciones doradas del siglos XIX. Cuenta con cuatro confesionarios y varias imágenes del siglo XVIII. El camarín es de estilo Neogótico.
En su interior se albergan en un Mausoleo, los restos de las famosas Cautivas Correntinas, quienes oraron en 1869 a su regreso de la Guerra de la Triple Alianza.
Recomiendo visitarla de noche que tiene una bonita iluminación.

Estive na região em pescaria E uma tarde fui até correntes e o local é interessante também para comprar alguma lembrança da Argentina. Os preços das lojas são caros.
