Buenos Aires

Sometimes places are not just places: they also contain the essence of the people who passed through them. Getting to know the places where great personalities of our history lived allows us to get to know them a little better, step on the ground they stepped on and perceive them fused in their surroundings. In the city of Chascomús (Buenos Aires), it is possible to visit the home of a man fundamental to our democracy: Raúl Alfonsín.

Alfonsínis considered by many theFather of Democracy, for having been the first constitutionalpresidentto come to power after the military dictatorship. He was born in Chascomus and grew up there, but never stopped returning to his city, where everyone remembers him with great affection.

At the corner of Mitre and Crámer Street, right in front of the Deliberative Council — where he began his political career — is what was his home. The architect Ricardo Calderón was responsible for renovating it and its two floors keep, like all the houses in the historic center of Chascomús, the colonial styleof the famous Plaza de la Independencia.

For those who are close to this beautiful city, we recommend taking a moment to get to know this residence, which has a lot to do with our current history and with one of the men who made politics his raison d'être.
