In 1853, in the same building, while the constituents finished the National Constitution, Hermenegildo cooked alfajores for them. Its traditional alfajor is called Merengo and is recognized as the alfajor santafecino. Today the company is in the hands of the Montemurro family, who bought it and have been running the company for three generations.
