Opening times are limited at certain times of the year and this is a small museum dedicated to the Argentinian hero San Martin who spent his last year's living here.

Although the opening times are limited, worth going to . You are allowed to go around the rooms on your own, but there is someone there to answer any questions

Wen to see the house where San Martin died; the Liberator of Argentina, Chile and Peru. Good visit; a lot of mementos from his life. Sad that the Argentine didn't appreciate him until after he had died. A noble spirit, and not hungry for power.

We really wanted to visit this museum, went there but found it's not open for public anymore. Maybe closed for temporary ?? It's very disappointed.
