  • Here a museum operated in old administrator houses with usual tool, which at the beginning of the 19.Jahrhundert is to a good life.

  • Very nice Museum to learn. Good storytelling of the guidelines place explaining the history, fauna, traditions and life of Ricardo Güiraldes. You can not go to San Antonio de Areco bypassing the pulpería "La Blanqueada" that is inside the Museum. In addition there are several other things to see: the cistern, an historic ombú and Gaucho typical things inside the building. The entrance is free. Only one if you want to be a collaboration. That it should do so because the staff deserves it. The place is a few blocks from the so-called "Old bridge". Recommended.

  • 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...
  • Very nice place to enjoy with family. Easily accessible, with plenty of space to discover. Recommended for a family trip. Very picturesque throughout.
