Belgrano II Base

Belgrano II Base is a permanent, all year-round Argentine Antarctic base and scientific research station named after General Manuel Belgrano, one of the Libertadores and the creator of the Argentine Flag. It is located on Bertrab Nunatak on the Confín Coast, Coats Land.

As of 2014 it is Argentina's southernmost permanent base, the world's third further south permanent base, and the world's southmost base built on solid rock, which makes it particularly suited for geological research.

As of 2014 Belgrano II is one of 13 research bases in Antarctica operated by Argentina.
