Milestones "Algarrobo bonito":
This is an old and enormous Algarrobo specimen which caught the attention of the Alvear pioneers in 1900, when the engineer Chapeaurouge began the task of dividing the land into parcels for future crops. The carob tree is still standing at the moment thanks to the firmness of the neighbouring of Alvear, who opposed to its cutting in the mid-60s to facilitate the construction of the National Route Nº 188. Currently, the street was built besides the tree.
