  • Got a day of rain, enters through the grocery store where he already began to see a very typical place. You report that the entry is at will and the places that you can go. The road to the Museum outdoor through a beautiful park (pity the rain) and coming to a place very Gaucho but built especially to be Museum. Many things to see very interesting, beautiful Creole art pieces. It is certainly worth knowing it.

  • A place beautiful. There are horses with heaps, cows and bulls. Ariel, the press is a very cult that can tell you in detail what the culture restaurant and traditionalism. I went without much expectation, and I became very happy.

  • the Museum includes a general store and Museum, we went to a guided tour where guide us gave a talk of a good time, with knowledge of what they spoke and transmitting his enthusiasm and energy. Both the Museum and guided tour are free of charge

  • A GEM that one must not miss when you walk to San Antonio de Areco, go to 12:30 or 3 pm which is the timetable of guided tours, take it the Guide are 10! Next to the Museum is the Blanquita, old-fashioned general store, accompanied by centenarian trees. Then cross the river and reach the Centre of the village with silverware, braiding and saddlery businesses in the vicinity of the central square. A few blocks away the copper pot La Chocolaterie, DELICATESSEN that produce! Don't miss the Church opposite the plaza.
