Museo del Gaucho information
Housed in the ornate Palacio Heber, this museum eloquently conveys the deep attachments between the gauchos, their animals and the land. Its superb collection of historical artifacts includes horse gear, silver work, and mates and bombillas (metal straws with filters, used for drinking mate , a bitter ritual tea) in whimsical designs.
