#3 of 10 in Parks in Merlo
A tree that has lived for almost a millennium, Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo) inspires admiration for nature. The "Grandfather Tree"--as it's affectionately called--takes pride of place in a park area surrounded by younger vegetation. Competing claims exist as to the old mesquite tree's actual age, ranging from 800 to 1,200 years. View the tree and admire the resilience of nature it represents, with its massive trunk and thick, twisting limbs. A market section of the park sells local food and souvenirs.

  • whenever I go to Merlo I visit, their size and their branches that rise and fall, and return to stand up... so many years standing! It is nearby and the beautiful poems of Aguero are known to visit him.

  • If it can be described in all its magnitude to silence, it would probably be where the grandfather carob tree. Great place, of beauty only proven to walk the paths that surround it. Ancient tree, according to entry posters, worth admiring... Silence, admiration, I rejoice... a lot of adjectives to describe such natural beauty! I love the trees!

  • Very nice place to visit, take a few mates and eat what they sell there inside. The visit lasts no more than 20 minutes, but if the day this cute you can stay to enjoy the facilities. The entrance is by family or by quota, resulting in a very affordable price.

  • Very cute place. Impressive 1200-year-old tree. Quiet place for some rich mates with homemade bread offered in the workplace.
