Patagonia is a plateau that spreads almost over the whole southern sections of Argentina’s land. With a surface area of around 673 thousand km2, Patagonia consists of vast desserts and steppes. The name Patagonia originates from the word “Patagones”, which the Spanish used to denote the Teheuelche Indians, who were the first settlers of the area. The Patagonian plateau is covered in dessert spanning from the Andes to the Atlantic coast. There are also vast steppes that reach the foot of the Andes. The coast is mostly covered in tall cliffs that are separated from the water by a patch of dry land. The shoreline is mostly made out of layers of sediment stone made as a consequence of the flow of lava. The hills of Patagonia are made out of very resistant crystal rocks that “stand out” from the plateau.
