Like the torreon del monje this building was built at the turn of the century from a wealthy businessman as a summer home for his family. It houses now a museum (40 Pesos entrance fee) with works of the former owner Señor Castagnino, some original restaurated rooms and contemporary exhibitions. Not a must see.

The museum wasn't what I expected but I enjoyed it. There is a lot of interesting detail in every room and they have a good art collection to view.

The building was certainly of a french style and the entry was free although you need to check when it is open. The bottom is used as an art gallery and they don't want you take photos there but upstairs ( 2 more floors ) was OK Unfortunately many fo the rooms were bare and the house would have been... More
