These accounts that were in part true, in part the result of imagination, awakened the unusual attraction Patagonia holds in the world to this day. Many surrendered to the fascination of this remote area, others were seduced by the possibilities inspired by the lands at the end of the world. In this way, people from around the world, speaking different languages and filled with hope, courage and purpose, began a long journey to build a new life.
All the chronicles speak of a common dream of conquest and freedom, but also of the difficulties that its characters overcame based on their wit and boundless bravery in order to reach their goals.
Homage to these people is still paid in the memories of the settlers, holding in high esteem those who contributed to the Patagonian magic. The settlers still keep the most diverse items well preserved, sometimes cherished as their little treasures. Other items have become part of ordinary life. These items range from pictures and postcards aged by time, yellowish documents, drawings, maps and antique portraits, old newspaper clippings or a knife, a table, a lamp, a carriage or a trunk once owned by a famous character.
But basically, it is the tales and accounts passed on in thousands of different ways - that keep the thrill of the legacy that these men left behind.
