SHARKHUNTERS International
2016 "Hitler in Argentina
     Expedition
Day 13     11 February  (continued)

Sharkhunters President
HARRY  COOPER 1-LIFE-1983 spent the month of February 2016 on expedition in Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil and what he learned amazed even him.

What is this place?

 
     
 
     
 
     
 
     

In this photo array we walk around the building to give a good all around idea of the size.  In some of these photos we see people, so you can get a good perspectives of the size of the place.  It appears to be four stories above ground and there is also an underground section.

Unfortunately, vandals broke in a few months ago and trashed the interior.  The building is closed while it is being repaired.

 

Note that this building is on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  Why?  Let's take a longer look and get a perspective of the building, how and where it is situated on the cliff and what can be seen from high up in the "Eye of the Eagle", the uppermost floor which appears to be an observation post of some kind.

Let's look at the deck.....look out to sea.  It is quite a vantage point.

 
Photo above - we get an idea how high this is   Photo above - compare to the size of the people
     
Photo below - from the deck looking out to sea   Photo below - from the deck looking down the beach.
 


In the photos above we see the size of this structure and we see what it was like to look far out to sea and also to look down the beach.  Now we go down on the beach to get an idea how far the observers above could see.

 
Looking northward up the beach   Looking northward up the beach
     
 
Looking northeasterly up the beach   Looking easterly, more or less, off the beach
     
 
Looking southeasterly down the beach   Looking to the south down the beach
     
 
Looking southerly at the cliffs down the beach   Looking at ..............the beach

If you look directly up from the woman in the green chair to the bottom of the cliff, you will see an unusual object protruding out of the sand.  What is it?  What is it for?  We do not know, but let's take a closer look.

 
     
 

What is this thing?  What is it for?  Look closely at the lower right photo inside the red circle - the number "35" has been put there apparently by a welder.  Does that refer to 1935?  Or something else?

As to the house itself...........or as it is known locally the "Eagle's Nest" - why?  According to the accepted history, it was built in 1945 which itself, is quite interesting.  Also according to accepted history, it was built for a wealthy Italian who was a bit eccentric.  On the other hand, according to locals it was built as a lookout and//or a point of reference for German U-Boats and other vessels heading south to Argentina after the end of the war and the exodus of thousands from the crumbled Europe to safety and a new life.  We may never know - but two years ago a group of neo-Nazis held a rally here.  Strange?  Or was it so strange?

We drove on to Punte del Este, the Monte Carlo of Uruguay or as my guide Martin described it - "M & M" country, meaning "Models and MILFs".  Maybe he meant "Mercedes and Masseratis"?  Let's see when we get there.......
