One of the most interesting places within the Patagonian Ranch is the “Escondite de los Nazis”. It is located within a sector of the painting “The Germans” and according to locals, it served as a hiding place for former German soldiers who escaped justice in the late 1940s, after the end of World War II.
In the place we can see ruins of a main house, in addition to some traces that suggest it was inhabited for a few years. From pieces of wooden beams to remnants of an artisanal furnace, evidence suggests that those who lived there did so rudimentary, trying to keep a low profile during the years that followed the end of the second great war.
Popular legends tell that the remains of these Germans lie underground very close to the stone house, forever keeping the secrets of their wanderings in Europe, and who knows where else.
