Cholila lies in northern Patagonia's Lake District, on the eastern flank of the Andes. Chatwin lingers here as it's the site where Butch Cassidy (Robert LeRoy Parker) camped out in his cabin with the Sundance Kid (Harry Longabaugh) and Etta Place.

A quiet town, it has magnificent views of the mountains of Tres Picos and Cerros Dos, where the gang made their escape and - according to some - met their end. The cabin can still be seen, though it's discreetly hidden from the road and is often deserted.
