  • It is a House Museum beautiful. Exciting to explore it and to discover extremely interesting pieces. I loved it from the entrance with one sentence dedicated to his mother. Also the courtyard, where is the famous fig tree under which wove Doña Paula. The loom is well maintained in one of the rooms. I recommend making the journey with a guide, to remember the life of the hero and of course data, a photo outside the House, with Sarmiento
