The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier

Timonator Germany - 21-Mar-20

The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier

Despite the start of Corona pandemy and the closing of all museums in Argentina the house of Le Corbusier in La Plata was still open to the public. I knew roughly were it was and almost ran past, but a nice guy that was the cashier stopped me from passing by. It costs not even 200 Pesos and I was able to run through the whole building without any restrictions. Only some drawers were locked but many cupboards were even openable. Not having any touchpoints with Le Corbusier before I checked his Wikipedia article in beforehand and what striked me most and made me dislike him was his assumed sympathy to national socialism in times of Nazi Germany. However being in the House I was able to focus on his architectural work

Colonia del Sacramento

Timonator Germany - 29-Feb-20

Colonia del Sacramento

I arrived at night in the very cheap but nice Toca Madera Hostel close to the Bus Terminal and the Barrio Historico which is the WHS on a small peninsula. The rest of Colonia lies aside the peninsula, but I didn't visit. The Barrio Historico is really full of nice looking restaurants and cafés which lie below the many poplars all around the place. In the Deli de las Rosas I ate a really nice yoghurt with muesli and fruits for low price. Really recommendable. In the evening I also had a nice but expensive dinner in a beautiful patio in the nice summer air. But enough of the food ads- I of course had a walk around the Barrio also. However I did not take use of the two tourist information centres

Fray Bentos

Fray Bentos

Having little idea of what I will encounter I took a bus from Salto, Uruguay to Fray Bentos which I planned as a stop on the way to Montevideo. After 4,5 hours I arrived in Fray Bentos at about 10 in the morning. I took my whole backpack to the street corner opposite of bus terminal as there are no lockers in the terminal. After 45 minutes, at about quarter to 11 a.m., a public bus full of pensioners arrived and took me in a huge detour in 35 minutes to Barrio Anglo which is named after the factory and equals the WHS

Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis

Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis

I had the plan to visit both Loreto and San Ignacio Miní from Posadas including the light show in the evening and afterwards return to Posadas. I will highlight upfront: It worked out fine with public transportation!

Taking the bus from Posadas bus terminal which is about 5 km south of town center- easily reached by public buses- in the direction of Puerto Iguazù, I jumped off the bus in the middle of the highway 12 at a junction leading towards the really small village of Loreto. It´s about 45 minutes walk on the laterite dirt road until you reach the entrance gate of Loreto mission. I was almost the only one there at 3 p.m. on a sunny Wednesday. There is a visitor center with a 3D map of the mission where a female guide caught me and started introducing me to the mission. First of all I highlighted that I would like to go afterwards to San Igancio Miní which made her suggest that there is a 4 p.m

Jesuit Missions of Trinidad and Jesus

Jesuit Missions of Trinidad and Jesus

After two weeks of passing through the south of Paraguay of course I could not miss the only world heritage site in the country before re-entering Argentina via Encarnación/ Posadas. Paraguay is really not the place of the top sights but what will be kept in mind is that every Paraguayan I have met in the two weeks was very kind and that the country is fantastically cheap to travel.

Getting to Trinidad from Encarnación is easily possible from the Terminal of Encarnación by asking one of the many people for a bus to Trinidad
