    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the Moises Bertoni Scientific Monument (Puerto Bertoni), the former home and research station of the scientist Moises Bertoni. It is located about a 1-hour drive from the border of Argentina and Brazil, and it can be accessed by boat from the Paraná River.

    The site is part of an important ecological corridor in the region and the ancestral home of the indigenous Mby'a and Guarani peoples, who helped Bertoni with his research into local flora and fauna, and culture. Today, some Mby'a and Guarani artists perform traditional songs and dance, and sell handmade crafts onsite.

    The Bertoni family's 2-story house is now a museum with informative displays about the life and work of Moisés Bertoni. You can see some of Bertoni's book manuscripts, letters, personal belongings, and extensive library. From the balcony, take in views of the Parana River. 

    Two hiking trails wind through the grounds. The Arroyo Bertoni path leads to a beach on the Parana River, and the Kuri`y Palmital path offers an interpretive experience of native and exotic plant life. You might also see examples of hunting traps used by the Mby'a and Guarani, and the family cemetery where Bertoni was buried when he died in 1829.
