The Messidor is delightful to visit, even if you can't step out of the car and see the inside of the palace. The view is amazing and the gardens beautiful. Built by one of the Patagonia's most famous architects, the palace is a gem.

This is a very beautiful residence. It belongs to the government but you can drive through the gardens and have a quick view of the place. It takes only ten minutes if you are in the neighborhood

If you are in a car this is a nice little detour to do before taking a walk in the harbor. You are not allowed to stop for security reasons, but the house is lovely to view. The house is one of the governor's residences.
