Paradores Draghi is the ideal corner for those who enjoy the cultural attractions offered by a place. There you will access a tour through the sumptuous space where you can see a vast collection of pieces of rural goldsmithing of the nineteenth century, which reveals the mysteries of a period of national identity consecration of the figure of the Gaucho as a main character of that time.

In Paradores Draghi begin your journey through history not only as a spectator, but also as a participant in the process of making exclusive goldsmith pieces that take shape through the hands of artisans recreating the techniques of traditional goldsmithing as their founder, Juan José Draghi, did in the 60s.

Located on Segundo Sombra Street, between Alsina and Arrellano. Don José Ruiz de Arellano founded the first oratory in the center of his stay. The foundation of this oratory was very important for the creation of the town. In the years 1720 and 1728, the first chapel was built, it was located a little more to the right than the current one. The foundation stone of the present church was placed on February 7, 1869 and was buried under the central entrance door. Inside it was placed a lead box containing the original records written on parchment, newspapers of the day, medals and coins of the time.

How great is it to be a Gaucho? Pretty GREAT!! Our trip to the ranch started with our guide Aime explaining life on the pampas and traditional customs. There was a short stop to buy souvenirs and my husband couldn't resist getting a poncho and hat. We then went to the little town of San Antonio de Areco and toured the silver shop that hand crafts the silver for saddles and bridles. Then on to the ranch where we were treated to a horse ride, traditional meal under the trees and then traditional dancing, music and of course gauchos and more horses. A great day to live the life of a gaucho.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Gaucho Estancia la Florida. Our group of about 10 were basically invited by a family on a working gaucho ranch. The empanadas were great, as was the BBQ parilladas feast! There was singing and dancing. We even got to take a short horse ride around the ranch. Aime, our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. She gave us insight about life in Argentina. A fabulous day!

This tour is a waste of time and money. I expected an experience with Argentine "cowboys" and a working ranch. Maybe experience what Gauchos do, tending horses, riding demonstrations, rope tricks or something special. After all, it took all day. No, all we did was visit a farm, ride down a dusty road in a buckboard, saw nothing but farmland. They didn't even resemble cowboys, the horse riding option was only what you might find at your local fair. Just riding a horse in a line of other horses going very slow and on a dusty trail with nothing interesting to see. The lunch was good, plenty to eat, good food with some very mediocre wine. Then they had a little show which with some folk dancing, very amature and boring. Don't waste your money, and more importantly don't waste a whole day of your time in Buenos Aries on this. You will be disappointed.

Such a fun experience visiting the countryside. The ranch is so relaxing and a break from the city. Being around the animals is a plus. Lunch was fantastic and delicious. Worthwhile to visit.

Told we would have time to see and tour the ranch. We had no time at all to see the ranch. All else was good. Thank you.
