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.

  • It is a very very old carob, with some already dried branches, propped up by several sectors. They say that it has about 700 years, that the interesting thing about the visit is to see as he is preserved despite his years. Is encue.ntra in the middle of a beautiful park. So if you like nature you don't miss it
