Museo Larreta is made up of the 20th century residence of the Argentine writer, collector and ambassador Enrique Larreta and a stunning Andalusian-style garden, currently host to a collection of modern sculptures.
The house was built at the start of the 20th century with the aim of recreating 16th century Spain, a period of cultural flourishing. Larreta created a sort of setting in his own home, inspired by his most famous novel ‘The Glory of Don Ramiro: A Life in the Times of Philip II’. His collection of sculptures, painting, ceramics, weapons and furniture belong to the Spanish Renaissance and Baroque period and attempt to recreate the Spanish Golden Age.
We’re going to take a short guided tour around the museum and take some time to escape the hectic city of Buenos Aires to appreciate the sculpture display and the peaceful gardens.
Come and enjoy an afternoon full of culture with other international students!
