Welcome to Northern Pampas

This is the homeland of the gaucho, the skilled, nomadic horsemen who are a national symbol of Argentina; look out for their distinctive boinas (berets) and traditional silver work, including knives and mates (gourds for drinking yerba mate, a bitter tea-like beverage). Several good museums explore the history of the gaucho, who is also celebrated in San Antonio de Areco's annual Fiesta de la Tradición. At the heart of gaucho culture is the asado, an elaborate barbecue stacked high with generous cuts of beef.
