Casa De Aedo - Museum Gualeguaychú - Argentina

Casa de Aedo is Gualeguaychú's oldest building. City founder Tomás de Rocamora built this home of typical colonial design in 1800-1801. One of his daughters married José Antonio Aedo, who then received the house. It remained in the family until 1986. During that century and a half, the Casa de Aedo saw many adventures, the greatest perhaps being when Giuseppe Garibaldi held the family captive while he and his troops sacked the city September 20-21, 1845. The house displays furnishings and other belongings of the Aedo family.
