Overview

The labyrinth of Borges is the first monument erected in memory of the great writer. Made in 8700 square meters with 7150 Buxus supervivens plants, was designed by the English Randol Coate as an open book to the universe containing in itself the story of the writer. This living artwork, as suggested Borges had wanted to be honored in 1984 in Rome, has over 2500 meters of trails to explore its hidden symbolism, which is visible only from the tower 20 meters erected only to appreciate the labyrinth. There is an interpretive center where the history of the deep and old friendship between JLB with the owner of the Estancia Los Alamos, Susana Bombal, and the crusade of his nephew, Camilo Aldao (h) to realize the dream of making real the maze that we all enjoy. Two different places to eat in budget and quality; restrooms, parking, games for children containtion, a hidden ane maze in the forest, and a large park surrounded by vineyards, canals, forests and plum trees form part of this wonderful artwork that will last forever in his memory.

The place is very interesting from a historic point of view, since the Argentinian writer J. L. Borges used to visit that finca.

close to the city it is a very unique and well kept maze, that takes a little skill to find your way around, with food when you get done

Kids had fun in the maze, it;s longer than it seems. You can bring your own food or eat in the pulperia. Well maintain.

feeling like a character of a story is a wonderful experience, and if you didn't read Borges you will want to to after this trip.
