Super interesting building but its very hard to get a tour. I lived here for 6 months and toured once, but when I had family visit it was hard to get access.

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.

Interesting to see the protest and signs outside. This is also the starting point for one of the free BA tours.
