Victoria Ocampo, was an Argentine woman, writter, and had a very interesting life. Born in 1890 - 1979
She lived in Villa Ocampo, during part of her life, where she invited all the best artist from that period of time. From Tagore, Indira Gandhi, Bioy Casares, Graham Greene,Albert Camus, Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda, Albert Camus, and many more.
You can visit all the house rooms, and the exquisit garden. In those days when Victoria lived in the house, the garden finished in the River (Rio de la Plata). It had a tennis court , and there is a famous picture with Victoria and Igor Stravinsky, I asked and the tree of the picture is no more in the garden.
I highly recomend this place, and also dont forget to call and book your place to the cooffe bar. They have delicious cakes and sandwiches, and also champagne!
You will feel to be in the Buenos Aires of 1930, with those lovely houses and gardens.
Thanks to Victoria that she donated her house to Unesco, and also is considered an Historic Museum of Buenos Aires.
Get in Love with this Great Place, that was visited by Great People from all the world.
As Victoria said, the house should be opened to all the World!
