The Pampas & the Atlantic Coast

Tours of the Castillo Luro, as the museum is known, offer insight into the luxurious eccentricities that Argentine landowners could afford to indulge in during the first half of the 20th century. Note, for instance, the walnut fireplace – an obsession that Doctor Pedro Luro was able to satisfy only by purchasing an entire Parisian restaurant.
