La cárcel del fin del mundo

Si tu aventura te lleva a la Argentina y dentro de ese hermoso país a recorrer la Patagonia llegando hasta el rincón más austral que es Ushuahia, entonces no deberás perderte de conocer y recorrer la cárcel del fin del mundo.

Inaugurada en 1911 esta prisión llevó el nombre de “Presidio y Cárcel de Reincidentes” y fue construída en su totalidad por los mismos delincuentes. Pues hoy, este sitio que supo albergar a los más peligrosos hombres de la época funciona como museo.

Entonces, entre sus húmedas paredes, sus pequeñas celdas y sus estrechos pasillos, los visitantes podrán ver los diferentes objetos expuestos: uniformes, encendedores y esculturas que evocan a las personas más famosas que pasaron sus días allí.

Entre ellos se destacan el llamado “Petiso Orejudo” o Cayetano Santos Godino, quien a los 16 años ya había asesinado a tres chicos e incendiado siete edificios, también Mateo Banks quien mató a 8 miembros de su familia, entre otros presos que forman parte de la historia policial argentina y que se han convertido en verdaderos mitos.

Pero vamos que si otro atractivo tiene este rincón del país es el Tren del Fin del Mundo, que funcionara por primera vez allá por 1902 y llevado por bueyes. En un principio sirvió para llevar a los delincuentes y materiales que servirían en la construcción de la prisión, hoy es todo un atractivo turístico que sale de la Estación del Fin del Mundo en las afueras de Ushuaia. Su recorrido luego lo lleva la ladera oriental del Monte Susana, por el centro del valle del río Pipo, entre el Monte y la cadena montañosa El Martial para adentrarse luego en el Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego.

Una experiencias única en un sitio alejado y hermoso donde la naturaleza nos rodea.

    [...] Ushuaia es la última ciudad al sur del continente americano y también es un paraíso patagónico que merece la atención tanto por su paisaje de montañas como por la vista del Canal del Beagle. Pero por muy bonita y austral que creo que sea el mejor destino para quienes sufren de vértigo. Para llegar hay que cruzar una ruta serpenteante y empinada entre la montaña. Para peor es angosta y los conductores conducen demasiado rápido. [...]

    Si bien la mayoría de los datos son correctos, es importante chequear la fecha de inauguración del Penal de reincidentes de Ushuaia, porque en reciente visita se nos señaló que la apertura fue en 1902 ó 1904. Para reafirmar el concepto se aporta la fecha de inauguración del Tren de los Presos, la que nunca puede ser anterior a la citada apertura. Atentamente…

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
