Welcome to Perito Moreno

The town’s glory came in 1898, when explorer Perito Moreno challenged Chile’s border definition of ‘divortum aquarum continental’ (which claimed the headwaters of Pacific-flowing rivers as Chilean territory) by rerouting Río Fénix, which flows through town, to Atlantic-bound Río Deseado. The river and the area remained Argentine, and the town took his name.
