  • We visited the site the day of commemoration of the 80 years since the death of Uruguayan writer. Access is very impressive and well maintained Museum.

  • I found the place abandoned to fend for themselves. There's not much to see, the time was destroyed and not had the work to recover the parts, the electrical machines that tell about the life of Horacio Quiroga Home.

There is that walking enough from what would be the area Central of San Ignacio until it House, by road of land and low the Sun missionary that is quite wwiii, but it say as notice to who that you make wrong or have problems of mobility because but not passes nothing. Only be water.

  • It is very little house and furniture original but just as worth going. Very well made reconstruction and the ambience of the House s. On the other hand the way to get this poorly signposted and is ground. It's a nice walk.

  • The venue presents a replica of the first House that the writer built in wood (played for the filming of his biopic), second home (built in stone), some walks and an exhibition hall. Despite denote lack of maintenance, the place is in good condition. Tourist guide is not available.
