San Antonio de Areco town had many changes in its architecture.
Was originally located in the road “Camino Real” to the Alto Peru, becoming a colonial post for the riders of the Pampas.
In the fringes of the village, there were small forts dedicated to the defense of the villagers from the attacks of the local indians that were attacking the town.
The local villagers were bulding up their San Antonio de Areco chapel and all the main buildings and houses of “adobe”: mix of straw with mud or clay. Originally for 100 years it was a “muddy” town.
Some local people of the Estancias San Antonio de Areco learnt how to make bricks and then the whole architecture of the village change dramatically with the spanish and italian people bringing their own style of construction and design of houses and buildings.
