This 18th century house was the home of Esteban de Luca, a soldier, poet, journalist and author of "Marcha Patriótica", Argentina's first national song.

His military career included an important role in the defence of Buenos Aires against the British invasions of 1806 and 1807. The house has been restored and preserves period architectural elements.
