  • Tuesday, 6 March-born in 1798 by a wealthy and influential family. From an early age he became an officer in the militia and after some battles he was named captain. He spent his life fighting and was a caudillo and Argentine Federal military, one of the last leaders in taking up arms against the centralism of Buenos Aires. For this reason, it is considered a hero by the people of the province of La Rioja. Wounded several times, he reached the rank of General and rebelled against the centralism of Buenos Aires. After his last fight of 12 November 1963, in which he was defeated, he surrendered to the enemy Commander who, in defiance of all laws of war, killed him and cut off his head. In 1900 the province of La Rioja made him officially a hero. On 12 November 2013, this impressive monument was erected to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his assassination. To visit.

  • I was in this beautiful capital in October 2013, so I didn't have the chance to see this beautiful monument inaugurated. Now I come back and one of the things I did was go to the front Terminal to see it. I am spectacular. Congratulations to the sculptor and the decision to end it.

  • Well-deserved tribute to the great leader of the Plains. Its location, at the roundabout near the bus terminal, is ideal for those arriving in the city may look at it. It is very well achieved.
