Gaspar de Santa Coloma

Gaspar de Santa Coloma y Sollano was a Spanish merchant prominent in the economic and cultural development of colonial Argentina.

Gaspar de Santa Coloma was born in "Caseria de la Campa" , a town in the Alava Region of the Basque Country, Spain. He arrived at the Rio de la Plata in 1768, and in 1781 he married Flora de Azcuenaga y Basavilbaso, daughter of Vicente de Azcuenaga and granddaughter of Domingo de Basavilbaso, all of Basque origin.

Gaspar de Santa Coloma was married to Flora de Azcuenaga y Basavilbaso. Although there are no known descendants of these Azcuenaga, their legacy survived in the Presidential Residence (Quinta de Olivos), as well as in the two columns of the Quinta San Antonio, at the Vicente Lopez Partido train station, in the Province of Buenos Aires; they survived the passage of time possibly because these two columns were located between the railway and the street, away from development.
