Starting with the aesthetic nature of Bariloche, this Argentinian town demonstrates the early German influence back in the 1880s. Having started their journey in neighbouring Chile, migrants were forced to move east across the border into Argentina. The history of this town is conveyed by its Alpine-like appearance.
