  • The Palacio San José was the scene of historic events of great importance for Argentina, currently functions as a museum. There are guided tours, which guides with lot of passion broadcast and recount what happened in these galleries and corridors and lead us with his story to a time in our history. Beautiful as this preserved. Part of the gardens was a bit careless. able to was that there were days of wrong time, is more the day that was llovizno in all the travel.

  • It is a place that is very important in our history, by here spent many leaders, Presidents of our country as well as a construction pioneer in health services, and this before the great city of Buenos Aires, a true Palace with works of art from the Blanes Uruguayan painter, who painted at the request of Urquiza inmortalizo all their battles, a beautiful chapel with great work dedicated to the patron saint of the stay , San Jose, the value of the entry is 20 pesos, almost ridiculous to the wonderful thing about the visit.

  • This Urquiza ahead! A leap in time, review our history in vivid way. I believe that talks with guides that can serve to further illustrate what lived within the Palace are recommended. Architecture, technology (for the time). I went without much expectation, and I think that was what he did to most surprise me everything. A place that you should definitely visit.
