The Centro Civico is a small square - not much to behold. However I would go again and again for the sole purpose of cuddling more St Bernard puppies. Photographers bring them to the square and people pay to have their pictures taken with them (and grown up ones too) but you can cuddle them in between photos when they... More

It is a pretty, small, walkable city....and in good weather you realize you are in a kind of "Alpine" type city in the summer. Lots of shops for renting ski gear, restaurants and all of it on a beautiful mountain lake.

You haven´t been to Bariloche if you haven´t seen this site which has been declared "national historical landmark". It is the gathering place of almost everyone especially in the weekends However, I would like to recommend WHEN to come to this fantastic building ensemble. Does the fact of having been to Bariloche 16 times make me eligible to suggest when... More

Very nice environment to take a walk, shop, and see the lake view. Take a walk around and you will find nice restaurants, shops and lots of things to see.

very cute, European style civic center. For a mere 3 pesos you can visit the museum (eh). Next to the museum is possibly the tiniest library I had ever seen. If you want a picture with a St. Bernard this is the place. While they don't give you a digital copy of the pic, you can purchase it for $10.

With such natural beauty all around the town of Bariloche & surrounding areas, the Centro Civico of Bariloche not only pales by comparison but is actually surprisingly unattractive. The only aspects that merit a visit are the chocolate shops along Mitre Avenue & the excellent tourist information centers that provide maps & advice regarding trekking, climbing, transportation alternatives, etc.

Nice plaza area with an unsetting bronze statue of a "fallen hero" Julio Roca, who is guilty of Genocide. In this case, it does not make any difference to me what good he accomplished. They have an entire area in Moscow filled with other "fallen heros" from the communist past. Time to remove the statue.

Very well kept square with tango dancers, dancing to their hearts content. One could not miss this square as this is the main square in Bariloche.

While the structures may appear a bit worn, this is a lovely place to visit and do some people-watching. On a warm sunny day, there are all sorts of folks gathered here meeting with friends and family or just sitting on the lovely lawns taking in the view. And, of course, you can't miss the history of the abuela scarves... More

What was a great place in the past is now a shadow of what it should be. Poorly maintained buidings that for the pictures we saw, were stunning in the past. The main plaza is all painted and vandalised. The view saves the place, as with the rest of Bariloche.
