Simply a stunning theater. Beautiful architecture and history. Be sure to bring a camera/phone to take pictures. I did not get to see a show, only the tour. But from what I heard it is a fantastic place to see a show.

This is the main teacher in Argentina. We visit for a concert but they also offer tours during the day. We arrived 30 minutes early to take some photos. It's simply amazing.

Calling it "opera theatre" is not enough... I have been to orchestra concerts and operas and the acoustic is exceptional, no matter where you sit (or stand). The interior is also outstanding, including the great chandelier and the ceiling decorated by argentine artist Raúl Soldi.

It's always a pleasure to go and listen to live music in the most magnificent theater in South America. An astonishing building both aesthetically and acoustically. Can't miss it if you are in Buenos Aires.

Really remarkable sound for opera performances. They have guided tours, but my recommendation is to attend an opera and splurge for a orchestra seat

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
