Algarrobo de los Aguero (Algarrobo Abuelo), Merlo
(3.1/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Imposing tree. Be inspired by poets and all for the conservation of trees. Unfortunately around the tree there is trade from rags to sellers who try to Dodge... without however ea a journey that must be made to clear it. And exercise.

  • You receive a "contribution bonus" for the maintenance of the "tree". I do not know specifications in this respect, and parking outside of the fence. Inside is what it is; an old tree, some photos of memories and the inevitable sale of cheeses, cold meats and preserves unknown bromatological inspection to which they are subject. Beautiful to relax, take us Matt, trails. A couple of pleasant hours. Returning to slow down two women from prominent meats, enchalecadas with refringent tapes that force you to collaborate at will through the parking lot he had previously paid ($50). I told him that not. That he was tired of paying and paying for trumped-up jobs that are constraints to freedom or personal guarantee. I insulted as soon as language knew and with IMPUNITY BAG PHOTOS to THE CAR, to MY to MY FAMILY AMENAZANDOME CLEARLY. Obviously a policeman. I just send it to its biological birthplace and went. San Luis is good... but has the sins of Buenos Aires and Rosario in the street and away from resoverlos, the policy encourages them
