Very enjoyable visit, a very short and nice walk from the central part of town, specially in a sunny day. Very well kept, small but better than expected. Visit the Pulperia nearby.

Charming spot, walking distance from San Antonio centre. Plenty of information about Gaucho culture and life 60 - 100 years ago in the Argentine countryside including a recreated 'pulperia'.
