Barreal is where you will be able to visit Cerro Alcázar, the venue for the Concert of the Americas that takes place in the month of April and proves that man and nature can coexist peacefully.
The favorite sport in this Valley is landyachting, driven by the wind in Pampa del Leoncito, the land yacht speeds up and gets lost in the mountain. This plain of 12 kilometers long and 5 kilometers wide is a white desert that brings athletes and wind lovers together. If you can wait until nightfall, you will enjoy a striking starry sky.
