Buenos Aires
In the last few days, Villa Ocampo made headlines because the first ladies of the leaders who attended the G20 in Argentina met there. This gives us an excellent excuse to talk about this beautiful house -located in the town of Beccar, San Isidro (province of Buenos Aires)-, which was originally built as a summer residence for the aristocratic Ocampo family. In 1941, the writer Victoria Ocampo decided to move there permanently. Precursor of the feminist struggle that is so strengthened today, Victoria decided to turn that place into a space open to art and culture: many intellectuals of the twentieth century stayed there over the years. Victoria did not want the mansion to lose its function after her death, so in 1973 she decided to donate it to Unesco in life with the mission that it continue to be a place where the great themes of humanity were debated. Subsequently, it was declared a National Historical Monument in 1997. The house can be visited on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, between 12:30 and 19:00. It is worth spending some time in a beautiful environment and visit this space full of history and culture.
