  • Although you must deviate about 23 kms from route 14, worth the detour, the home of the gral urquiza is very well maintained and restored, offers guided tours and tells the story of pleasant way, there are a couple of screens with very interesting information and the courtyards and rooms will transport you in time, I was surprised very pleasantly , the input costs $ 20, so it is accessible to all!

  • The guided tour is quite wise since it tells you the most important Palace and then you look at your own pace. The place is admirable, being mid-19th century it was a pioneer in the country through its current water system. It has an artificial lake, it is nestled in the middle of the Entre Ríos mount but with incredible vegetation, thanks to gifts that would make the General when he lived. A visit not to be missed if you are in the area,
