How Pueblo Escondido was create

Eco Family Farm Pueblo Escondio main prupose is agriculture, since we wait until olive grows we have decided to grow some culture. Genesis of name is comming of analogies related to, geology, history of ghost town in Argentina and his location, unexisting infrastructure, miners life place and political context.

Some curious travelers have heard his name; others, their history, but what is clear is that many want to get there and do not know exactly how to do it. Pueblo Escondido, a magical place among the mountains of Córdoba, in Argentina, a “ghost” town? a myth, a legend and a handful of history that no one can miss
