Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo), Merlo

(3.1/5 based on 700 reviews on the web)
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.

  • A place with nice desert views in the trip. Arriving at the place is like a Museum, quiet and in the middle of nowhere. The carob tree is a giant tree, just that. Not recommend.

  • It is an interesting place, with valuable carob for their years and witness to part of Argentine history. Have heard an excellent explanation of the implication of them Aguero in the life of Merlo and of the implications of the tree grandfather in the life of them Aguero.

  • Go to the Secretary of tourism and you sell mailboxes... We went to meet the carob tree, it's nice to see it, its trunk is very wide and its branches have risen and now already lower and they touch the ground; of hecjho some were underpinned. Near there is a vineyard young, is can pass by there also as to take advantage of the trip
