The ‘royal road’

La Bamba de Areco© Marie Le Fort

A hundred kilometres from Buenos Aires, lies the region of Pilar – known as the Mecca of polo players – where one encounters Argentine lands that are open to the infinite: fields of corn, green fields, linear alleys of trees and a few lost homes as points on a map. Then, without warning, we swap this elegant landscape for a dirt track…as if we’ve just opened the pages of a good book. A novel that would instantly revive the route of El Camino Real, the ‘royal road’, which connected Buenos Aires to northern Peru for decades.
