La Malvina

The Pampas & the Atlantic Coast

On the edge of the laguna, La Malvina – the elegant original estancia of Santa Rosa's founder – has been restored and reopened to the public. Now a minimuseum displaying old photographs of the settlement's early days, it's worth a walk-through. If you're interested in architecture you'll enjoy the side-by-side photos showing Santa Rosa's primary buildings, then and now.
