  • Virtual Parkour of the Guiraldes museum. It's free and you will see the origins of the Gauchos there. La pulperia, different kind of horses ornament and tools to guide them, some history, etc. Then you can go and visit the rest of San Antonio de Areco.
  • Very nice museum about gaucho history. Well maintained and definitely worth a visit.
  • Pretty small and boring...
