It is located in a National Heritage Site.
“Villa Hortensia” is one of the few remaining examples of the type of estate houses that gave rise to the hamlet which would eventually become the city of Rosario. It was commissioned by Juan Puccio based on a design by the English architect Herbert Boyd Walker, and the Catalonian Juan Canals managed the project. The building was later purchased by the Rouillión-Echesortu family. One of its members, who had befriended Carlos Gardel, used to invite him to the house for tea whenever the tango singer─nicknamed El Zorzal (The Thrush)─was in Rosario to attend horse races. Two other distinguished guests at the mansion were the aviators Jorge Newbery and Santos Dumont. Today, it houses the Northern Municipal District Center.
