Colegio Militar de la Nacion

The National Military College is the institution in charge of the undergraduate education of officers of the Argentine Army. It is located at El Palomar, Buenos Aires.

Established on October 11, 1869, by President Domingo Sarmiento at the height of the War of the Triple Alliance, its original quarters were opened in where the Parque Tres de Febrero stands today. It was transferred to San Martin in 1892, and to its present location, the site of the 1852 Battle of Caseros that deposed mid-19th century strongman Juan Manuel de Rosas, in 1904.

Its present facilities were inaugurated in 1937. El Palomar and La Casa de Caseros, installations involved in the Battle of Caseros, were declared a National Historic Monument.
