Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo), Merlo

3.1
#2 of 7 in Wildlife in Province of San Luis
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.

  • On this tour we visited the Agarrobo abuelo, we were given directions to the entrance of the park. We were able to travel its trails without problems and admiring the beauty of its flora and fauna.

  • It is a quiet place a forest, with autochthonous flora, very nice to relax for a moment, visit with family, appreciate the great old tree of Algarrobo, which is very large, to take into account that it is a carob of more than 1200 years, a shame that in some places EST To dying, and in others it does as a consequence of several parasites, in the place they charge an entrance by family group, the place has bathrooms but not with parking, and inside there is a couple of stalls of craftsmen, the people of the place very friendly.
