José Nogueira’s Mansion. This is one of the oldest buildings in the entire Patagonia. It was built in 1890 by José Nogueira and his wife Sara Braun. Nogueira, a Portuguese sailor, was one of the most successful Patagonian pioneers. The mansion became one of the most outstanding symbols of the city. In 1982 it was declared a National Monument. Since 1992 it became a luxury hotel where Juan Carlos de Borbón, King of Spain, stayed in 2004. Princess Anne of England also stayed here in 2007.
