A former summer retreat of writer Victoria Ocampo, Centro Cultural Villa Victoria Ocampo now hosts art exhibits, plays, and concerts. The wooden house of English design was built for the writer's godmother in 1912 and used to provide the setting for literary salons attended by aristocrats and prominent artists, such as Jorge Luis Borges. Cross the green lawn surrounded by a lush garden to enter the house, and explore rooms filled with antique wooden furniture dating back to the building's early years.

  • Old and in the process of overhauling space. Spirit of victory in every corner. A video telling his life. There is no guided tour. A place to know the life of Victoria and explore it in an hour.
