With the slow feel of a Rocky Mountain backwater, La Junta is a former estancia (grazing ranch) that formed a crossroads for ranchers headed to market. Midway between Chaitén and Coyhaique, it's also an important transfer point for north–south connections, with solid lodging options. Unmistakable with its centerpiece monument to Pinochet, it now serves as a major fuel-and-rest stop for travelers, replete with old-fashioned hardware stores and a rocky butte bookending town.
