A leather bookmark from Tucumán:
Tucumán is the most densely populated, and the smallest by land area, of the provinces of Argentina. Located in the northwest of the country, the capital is San Miguel de Tucumán.
Neighboring provinces are: Salta, Santiago del Estero and Catamarca. It is nicknamed “El Jardín de la República” (The Republic’s Garden).
A famous building in this province is “The House of Tucumán“, which is a historical building and museum, where an assembly of delegates from several provinces of the country (the Congress of Tucumán) declared independence from Spain on 9 July 1816.
Thanks to my aunt for the bookmark.
