About
The labyrinth of Borges is the first monument erected in memory of the great writer. Made in 8700 square meters with 7150 Buxus supervivens plants, was designed by the English Randol Coate as an open book to the universe containing in itself the story of the writer. This living artwork, as suggested Borges had wanted to be honored in 1984 in Rome, has over 2500 meters of trails to explore its hidden symbolism, which is visible only from the tower 20 meters erected only to appreciate the labyrinth. There is an interpretive center where the history of the deep and old friendship between JLB with the owner of the Estancia Los Alamos, Susana Bombal, and the crusade of his nephew, Camilo Aldao (h) to realize the dream of making real the maze that we all enjoy. Two different places to eat in budget and quality; restrooms, parking, games for children containtion, a hidden ane maze in the forest, and a large park surrounded by vineyards, canals, forests and plum trees form part of this wonderful artwork that will last forever in his memory.

Very nice for all ages to pass through this labyrinth in about 30 minutes. Also a nice gift shop and decent rates, BUT we lost about 2 hours with our group, waiting for the food. It took them almost 2 hours to serve a simple pasta and you have to share the same with hundreds of flies.

The place is very interesting from a historic point of view, since the Argentinian writer J. L. Borges used to visit that finca.

Kids had fun in the maze, it;s longer than it seems. You can bring your own food or eat in the pulperia. Well maintain.

You can spend two or three hours in this place and have a nice time.
Go to the library and watch the documentary, which is repeated constantly, to get to know about the history of the maze. The video takes between 30 and 50 minutes, I think.
Next to the library, you can buy bottles of wine and some souvenirs if you wish.
Climb the tower to observe the maze before getting into it. You may want to bring a hat and sunglasses, mainly if you visit it during summer.
You would be in the maze for 20 minutes, I'd say.
You can also take a walk in the park, have a picnic or rest under the trees.
The restaurant is quite good. We had the empanadas and a couple of beers. I think that there are sandwiches and a few dishes too. You get your food in a basket and you can go anywhere in the park to have it. There are tables around.
This would be one of several good places to go during a stay in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina.

Borges laberinth is a great place to stay 3 hours in family with kids trying to find out the exit.
Place is well maintained and you can get a coffee or a Hot Chocolat after the experience at the pulpería. There are games for kids but we didn't use them. It's a very cool attraction for the family.
