Tentoten is a small town in the province Rio Norte of Latina north of Applegarden. The town was founded 1860 as an outpost at the northern "frontier" to the area of indigen tribes and for some years the terminus of the railway.

The town has the name from the geographic position at 10° south and formerly 10° west (now 40° east). It was given from the ingerisk speaking railway engineers, who worked at the railway from Mendoza via the Porta Ferra and along the Rio Norte to the northern boundary.
