Those who can’t make the festival should stop by MusEUM anyway, not least to have a gander at the myriad of impressive sculptures that have won prizes at the Bienal de Escultura in previous years. Better yet, staff hand out brochures which contain a self-guided walking tour of the city’s best statues.

For some insight into the fascinating culture of the Chaco, pay a visit to this small yet informative central museum. Exhibits cover everything from early indigenous inhabitants to the mixed raced and migrant population, including numerous artifacts from all three.

Democracy Park

On the northern end of town on the banks of the Rio Negro lies the Parque De La Democracia, a large green space popular with locals after some rest and recreation. Most come in the late afternoon to walk or cycle along its footpaths or cruise around the river in a hired boat.
