Potrerillos used to be a group of farms and agricultural facilities, that gained importance after the railroad system reached it. It then became a residential area, as well as a rest area for temporary residents, and a tourist resort.
The Potrerillos reservoir
A large dam on the Mendoza River (Presa Embalse de Potrerillos) forms an artificial lake that measures 12 km in length and 3 km in maximum width. Uphill near its shore, the settlement of Villa Potrerillos, over 1,380 meters above mean sea level, serves as a base for activities such as hiking, rock climbing, ice climbing, ski, rafting in the river, and paragliding.
I was on my way to Cordon Del Plata then i decided to stay for one night by the lake and take a few shots. That was the gorgeous result!
