Visiting Commodore Rivadavia and Rada Tilly
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2021-11-28
Getting to Comodo Rivadavia has 2 options, either by road or by plane, I went by car and it is without a doubt the most exciting way to do it. It's 1730 km from Buenos Aires along Ruta 3, but the interesting thing is not just the road, it's all that we can stop and visit along almost 2000 km. Then it's one of those roads where you never get to the end, there are dozens and dozens of kilometers in a straight line where the landscape is always the same and where from time to time you have to stop so you don't get your eyes closed.
Comodoro Rivadávia has one of the largest Portuguese communities in all of Argentina and for that reason alone it was worth it.
Comodoro is also the largest producer of oil and natural gas in Argentina, which is perhaps why it is one of the cities with the best quality of life.
When I arrived in Comodoro, I met a descendant of Portuguese, Oscar de Brito, who took me to know the city and where the oil wells are located, as well as the sea lion communities and the landscapes of the region.
12 km from Comodoro is the town of Rada Tilly which is a satellite town of Comodoro where middle and upper class families live. Rada Tilly is the seaside resort of Comodoro with a beautiful beach located in the bay of Rada Tilly.
