It is a curiosity to visit the place where Mr. Francisco Bocca, married to Ms. Enriqueta Speroni, founded in 1906 a bakery unique for those times...
The flour to make the bread and the wood for the oven were imported from Magallanes in Chile.
Besides, black bush from the region was used to keep the fire burning, and Mr. Francisco made the bread that was later delivered on horseback and in big baskets, and later on in a cart.
Two of his eldest sons, whose names were Domingo and Lunes (Sunday and Monday), made the delivery.
The bakery closed at the beginning of the twenties, and Mr. Francisco died in 1947, leaving 11 children in this piece of land in Santa Cruz.
