  • I really liked this very well echo all landscaped with paths with BBS in posters which have what happened in the battle, it has a beautiful view of the river.

  • The place has interest in the historical events that happened there, but could be a little more than infrastructure and give a minimum maintenance.

  • It is located about 20 kilometers from downtown San Pedro. Inaugurated in the framework of the celebrations of the bicentennial of Argentina. It consists of a sculpture with a circular fence of links and the openwork silhouette of the Gral. Juan Manuel de Rosas. The battle occurred a 20 November 1845 and to Lucio Mansilla commanded the Defense placed a few boats that had chains across the River in lands of the Obligado family to prevent the passage of the enemies. The balance was 250 dead and 400 wounded defending our national sovereignty. The ride is not very long, there are several viewpoints, in perfect conditions of cleaning bathrooms and a museum. It is worth visiting it.
