Patagonia is also a gastronomic journey. Abundant, cheap and delicious seafood in Chile, parrilladas (charcoal meats), deer or wild boar in Argentina (especially in Bariloche)... And why not try centollas (giant crabs) in Punta Arenas or Ushuaia? Patagonian sheep, salmon or trout are a delight for the taste buds. Vegetarians in this region without apples or tomatoes will unfortunately find the diet a little... heavy!
Fascinating legends :
From the city of Caesars to the king of Patagonia or an old successful French TV show (Ushuaia), and not to mention the fashionable singers (or not) who may have gone into exile there, Patagonia is a land of myths, a fertile ground for the most monstrous or most childish parables and tales. A way of engraving our dreams on these undefined spaces, populated by solitudes and drunk souls... To go to Patagonia is to become a little, and for a while at least, a poet.
