Discover a Ranch, kms away from Buenos Aires City. Its 1,200 hectares are devoted mainly to agriculture and to cattle and horse breeding. Its Main House and Museum and its straw-roofed constructions, such as the chapel, the dining-room, the 'pulpería' -a traditional store and also social gathering point for gauchos-, are worth a visit. Taste 'empanadas' (meat pastries) and Argentine wines. For those willing to participate in the traditional activities there are horses and carriages to go around. At midday, a Traditional Argentine Barbecue, an unforgettable spectacle of meat, broiled over open fire, sausages, grilled chicken, and a variety of salads; followed by home-made pastries and 'mate' (typical green tea) with a live Folk Music Show, followed by a Gaucho Skills Demonstration with 'cuadreras and sortija races', traditional games the gauchos used to play in the countryside.
Visit the historical complex of Plaza de Mayo, surrounded by the Government House, the Cathedral and the historical Cabildo, a beautiful 18th century building. Walk through one of the first avenues the city ever had, the Avenida de Mayo, seeing plenty of architectural samples of the end of the 19th century.
The tour continues south, to the oldest quarters of the city. Arrival to the traditional neighbourhood of San Telmo, with its cobblestone streets and its renowned antique fair, and to the picturesque area of La Boca, a colourful world where local artists show their paintings along the historical Caminito Street.
To the north, the tour visits the lakes in Palermo and its residential area. Finally, in the sophisticated La Recoleta quarter, one of the most exclusive ones, with elegant cafés and restaurants, we visit Our Lady of Pilar Church, said to be the oldest in the city, and the unique Northern Cemetery, to see the grave with Eva Perón's mortal remains.
