If you go without knowing much of the city's history, you might not enjoy it. Much of the original fabric of this part of the city has not been properly preserved and the curation of this historic space is choppy at best. You may enjoy...More

The place has been neglected for year, according to the Argentinian culture of not preserving the past. Vast parts of the building have dessapeared or demolished to make room for a parking lot. So sad. The famous tunnels, are not open to visitors, just a...More

Hosted in the old Jesuit's compound of Buenos Aires built at the end of 1600, this place has been restored in 1983 and offers a simple, fascinating patio with arcades, with a market of local artisan's products, a taller de liuteria (a guitar's making school)...More

The tour was conducted in Spanish so I was not able to understand much. You start in room, go to a small theatre, into a room behind the stage and then to the courtyard and then down some stairs to see closed off tunnel entrances....More

If you understand Spanish, I recommend this tour, if you don't, I still recommend the tour (cost about $2.81 US). Unfortunately, our guide (nice lady) told us she would only be providing her presentation in Spanish, but we were welcome to come along. We did,...More

I like history but this was not worth it in my opinion. Folks who don't understand Spanish should not even consider it. The history was not interesting at all. The tunnel visit was also boring.

back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
