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'.

This is a pretty nice place a short stroll from the town's center. The Museum is fairly informative and the park is very pleasant with good information on the estancia's life and history. A good way to spend a couple of hours in San Antonio......More
