If you like culture and traditions, try the rural town Museo Gauchesco Ricardo Güiraldes, which gives you a glimpse of the traditional Argentinian spirit. The museum was founded in the mid-twentieth century, and named after the writer of the famous novel "Don Segundo Sombra." Typical gaucho items of clothing, silverware, and period books -- including the complete collection of texts by Güiraldes -- are on display. The pink, river-spanning bridge Ponte San Antonio De Areco was built in the mid-nineteenth century, and apparently inspired the writer Güiraldes. For this reason, this structure was also mentioned in a text section of his famous novel. It is said that in the early days, a fee was charged for all the pedestrians who wanted to cross.
