A great place to watch people in the main square. You can even get a photo with a saint bernard. If it is clear, you can see the mountains across the lake

Centro Civico is an Icon of San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. Perhaps, Centro Civico may be the most recognized building in Bariloche.

A pretty place that looked a bit like a little Swiss town. Very easy to walk around and has many shops and restaurants. There are money changers too. We were lucky they were having some carnival and hence we got to see the locals celebrating.
