The creole park and the museum “Ricardo Güiraldes” represents the gaucho tradition
There are guided tours to the “Blanqueada”. There is some “gaucho” history to discover, and all our tradition is concentrated in these emblematic spaces. We invite you to visit all these places if you are interested in gaucho culture and also Argentinian history. You can visit these in San Antonio de Areco, a traditional town of the Argentinian pampas. Free of charge!
The Don Segundo Sombra book even though it may be considered as a continuity with Martín Fierro, more than an extiguished gaucho elegy it proposes new ethical examples to a youth that Ricardo Güiraldes considered disoriented and restless mainly. Structured in a basic way as lessons to be absorbed escaping from inexperience, lessons on work, amusement, morals, camp chores (horse taming, cattle rodeo “jineteada”, raw hide pieces of work done by the gauchos, animal healing, etc.), they become an example of “lo criollo” supported by a very specific and precise words.
