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.

Boliche Bessonart gaucho

Boliche Bessonart gaucho

The Boliche Bessonart gaucho, hosted by Augusto and Geraldina Bessonart, seems to be taken from Don Segundo Sombra (most popular gaucho novel, written in San Antonio de Areco province of Buenos Aires).

 

With its structure of old grocery store more than 200 years old and its particular atmosphere where families and young people, day trip tourists and arequeros: they are mingling and crowding together amongst the various generations in different hours along the full day and night.

 

estancia pampa gaucho bar

 

From the outside you can see that the building has a certain inclination on the walls and when you are entering you can notice the original ceiling and two restored rooms that have been in restoration work for two years.

 

picada gaucho areco

 

There is no much choices here but your can make a gastronomic tour having cheese chopped, salami and prosciutto, raw ham and cheese sandwiches, empanadas and “Fernet with Pepsi”: the specialty of the Boliche Bessonart gaucho: more than half of the soda bottle is pour into a long glass and the rest of the soda bottle is filled with the Fernet Branca, then the liquid in the bottle is mixed and served slightly poured into the long glass many different times till you empty the bottle. At the end you are drinking almost two full glasses.

 

fernet gaucho bar estancia

 

On the sidewalk there are some stakes: on weekends and holidays some Gauchos tie their horse and unsaddle for a quick drink and continue their tour to the countryside or Estancias.

 

On one wall is framed the poem “Be hospitable” written by Ricardo Güiraldes in his Estancia La Porteña, many different advertising posts of “Fiesta de la Tradición”, really old photos of local gauchos and there is a wide display of what the original general store was selling here: beer, vino, soap, oil, alpargatas, brooms, brushes.

There is still two big wooden refrigerator running made locally in Argentina by the Di Tella family factory: Siam.

 

local gauchos at the bar

 

It seems that everyone here have read the Ricardo Güiraldes poem “Be hospitable”. It is certain that the traveler is served like a king. And when you go you will be carrying “the gift of their brotherhood which improves the man.”

Gaucho museum Ricardo Güiraldes: Pulpería, General store and Bar

 

La Blanqueada is an old building over 150 years old. The counter is equipped with the traditional bars which separated the owner from his customers – only trusted regulars were allowed access to the interior of the pulpería. La Blanqueada features wax figures playing cards at the bar.

 

The men are dressed in the traditional gaucho pants or chiripa, botas de potro (made from the skin of the horse´s hind leg, similar to a boot but with the toes exposed) and red kerchiefs on their heads, a typical attire of the times of the Governor Rosas (between 1829/1832 and 1835/1852).

This is one of the most unique gaucho collection of their uses and customs.

The Flour Mill – The Shed and Horsewear room

 

Alongside the pulpería stands an old flourmill or tahona dating back to 1848. Made entirely of wood, it was used to grind wheat and originally belonged to the Luján Guard .

It was used to obtain flour to make bread. The shed and horsewear room was named after Aniceto Melo, a famous raw hide braider from San Antonio de Areco.

The shed houses a colonial carriage and horse carts as well as the frame used to hang the ring for the traditional horse “ring races”.

.

 

The House fo the Museum

 

The house resembles a fort insofar as it is surrounded by a moat and access is controlled by a drawbridge.

When immigrants ventured into the boundless pampas in times gone by, they built their farm houses following this pattern as a means of defense against the Indians.

This was the origins of the estancias where the gauchos were working.

 

The house reproduces an 18th century farm house with its welcoming corridor, its two side wings, whitewashed walls, tiled roof and low wrought-iron window railings where all these gaucho collection is preserved.

Various items of silver as well as representative paintings decorate the walls of the other rooms

Rural labor, countryside themes, horseback rides, bonfires, mate rounds and other images summarize perfectly the countryside feeling.

There are daily Full Day Private tours to this gaucho museum and to the traditional historical town of San Antonio de Areco: Tour to Gaucho Museum

 

.

 

These paintings are the work of Uruguayan Pedro Figari, who met Ricardo Güiraldes’ father and after a long friendship, they ended up being part of the Güiraldes family furniture.

.

 

The music, the dancing, the singing, the paintings and other artistic work, apart from literature, can be felt while touring around the museum. These may have been the feelings experienced by those who have taken care of it, still do and will keep an eye on it every day of the year in the future, as if it was their own home.
