Galarza Interpretive Station
Iberá Provincial Reserve, Galarza, Corrientes, Argentina.
An homage to Argentinean typical architecture, the “rancho”, built by local community following a technique transmitted through the generations.
This center is divided in two salons. One is dedicated to the cultural aspects, where once can find information about local settlers, their household styles, methods and construction materials used, crafts production and customs. In the other one, dedicated to natural aspects, one can find information regarding existing local fauna diversity, where the pampas deer, strange-tailed tyrant and saffron-cowled blackbird are highlighted. These animals are considered the most representatives of the area, and are considered to be on the verge of extinction.
