Tours for families & Kids: La Plata City

This enigmatic city was founded by Dardo Rocha in 1882, under a big transformation that made Argentina pass from an backward confederation into a modern State, under the leading of the 80's generation: young men, landowners, conservative, and influneced by all the ideas of the progess and the modernization.

The result of this process of bringing ideas and trends from France during 50 years is the presence of french arquitecture, also outside Buenos Aires city.

At the Present days La Plata is famous for its Stunning Cathedral, its Museum of Natural History and Children's city, a particular theme park with tiny arquitectute; definitely perfect for families with kids.

The exursion starts in the morning to drive the 51 km that separates Buenos Aires from La Plata.

Once there we are going to do a sighseeng in the Main Square (stops included), the goverment House, the Parlament, the obelisk of La PLata, and we are going to do a samll tour inside the outstanding Dardo Rocha Passage, and old train Station transformed into a cultural center

Another very important hightlight to be seen in La PLata city is the "Curuchet House", designed by the brilliant Le Corbusier

After that we will go stragh to The Museum of Natural History. The building has 135 meters or 443 feet long, and houses 3 million fossils and relics (including 44,000 botanical items), and a 58,000-volume library. Around 400,000 visitors pass through its doors yearly

The Musem is famous for participating in the rescue of the temple of Ramesses II organized in 1961 by UNESCO: In that time, Because of the planned construction of a levee in the Nile river that would flood the zone, UNESCO, and the Sudanese, Egyptian and Argentine governments funded a reservation and investigation rescue mission. This resulted in three excavation campaigns. They excavated the temple of Ramesses II from the thirteenth century and in return for their work, The Museum of La Plata received 300 items, 60 of which pertained to the temple of the legendary pharaoh. The remaining items were found in an Egyptian tomb or other prehistoric sites and cemeteries.

So many fossils and history will makes us hungry, so we will stop for lunch in a very nice restaurant of downtown (lunch on the passengers)
