One of the first attraction here is the gastronomy. In the year 1943 with the arrival of inmigrants from different parts of the world brought their own flavours and food( mainly European flavour). As a consequence strange names appeared in the local food such as Schwarzbrot, Schlachtplatte,Leberwurst,Appelstrudel which then started to be familiar in the village However ,some receipts had to be adapted to the local customs for instante “Torta Selva Negra” that in the original receipt the cream did not have sugar. Other receipts had also to be changed because of the weather such as “ Goulash” that in Europe is made with a lot of “ paprika” ( very spicy) is not necessary in this warm weather so in this way sometimos adapting the receipt or creating a new one has become a main attraction among others. This local and tipical food can be found in the sophisticated restaurantas of Villa General Belgrano.


A long time ago a Group of inmigrants founded a town and with its foundation a new style of architecture. It has an European style with a loto f wood and red-roofed, wood-frame houses.
