  • Impossible to pass by San Juan without visiting the birthplace of Sarmiento. The loom of her mother, the fig tree in the middle of the patio and lots of information about its history is preserved much of the original construction, with some restored theaters, many items and furniture used in the period. Didn't do the tour because they did not coincide with our schedules were very spaced out. There was a sign with seats of schools with phrases of celebrities that had to do with education, I loved it!

  • It is very interesting. You got that pay an entrance is $20 per person. There was no guide when we went. It is in the heart, so access is easy.

  • Living in San Juan city and not go to the birthplace of Sarmiento... cannot be ignored. The entrance has a value, discounted for seniors. We paid a visit guided, excellent guide. We learn many details of the life of Sarmiento. Finally: to exit a Bank of square with the statue of the national hero, typical. Summary: good start, not takes you more than 1 hour.
