with a neat layout. It was founded on February 4, 1898, on the shores of Lake Lácar.
Currently it houses a community of 23,354 inhabitants (according to the 2001

the determining factor of its explosive urban growth as well as of the growth of its
tourism activity over the last decade.
A lake area par excellence, where the blue hue of its lakes makes a striking contrast
with the dark green of its forests, its main attractions are defined by the beauty of
its captivating landscape. Lakes, rivers and hills, plus a unique fauna and flora and the
whole of the forest combine with the peace and quietude of this natural
environment, enhanced of course by the proverbial warmth and quality of its guest
