the pulperia

The oldest building dating back to the XVIIIth century, La Pulperia, served as a shelter for horses and carriages before later being converted into an inn where the gauchos would gather to sing, dance or dine. Today it has become a unique retreat for reading, relaxing, having a glass of wine or sharing a cup of tea.

As a tribute to the gauchos and their traditions, photographs by Aldo Sessa and paintings by Alejandro Moy abound, as well as leather and silver goods made by contemporary artists from San Antonio de Areco which adorn the boutique and attest La Bamba’s loyalty to its local town.
