We just had a little time before our bus came, but we learned so much about Areco, silversmithing and even Argentine politics from our tour. If it looks closed during their open hours, just ring the bell!

We enjoyed the 10-minute video with English subtitles to learn more about the history of the gauchos and their silver. Loved seeing the ornate silver belts.

managed by the family of the first silversmith in town. Very nice work. Well kept and located in the centre of town.
