Pequeña Italia

Multicultural gastronomy

Capitán Pastene is located in the Nahuelbuta range. It is a small Italian settlers’ town known by their rich culinary traditions, where authentic trattorias can be found along with prosciutto factories and handmade pasta, in addition to a wide range of accommodations decorated in the Italian way. Every year in June, a new settler arrival anniversary is celebrated, recreating their ancestors’ arrival in hundreds of carts. Then, ham, wine and the best pastas are served to celebrate.
