Stunning architecture, a clear example of Argentina's culture and wealth of better times. Neighborhood has deteriorated and there are people protesting that occupy the adjacent streets, so it doesn't always fell safe.

This is a building that tourists seem to pass by and photograph and rarely go inside. We went first thing in the morning and was advised that the Tour in English was at 1230pm. Tours are Monday's Tuesday's Thursday's and Friday 1230pm and 5 pm....More

It's another beautiful historical construction located at the other side of Mayo avenue in the opposite position of Casa Rosada (aprox. 2Km) There's a square in front of the building.

The National Congress building in Buenos Aires is the seat of the Argentine parliament. Construction of the building began in 1898. The decorative details were not completed until 1946.

Another landmark in the city and example of its amazing history. At the moment the parks in front are closed as the city is doing an overhaul/renovation of the surroundings.

Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
