The building itself is beautiful and in line with the elitist sport and the smart people who attend the races. There are regular gastronomic shows and open-door occasional exhibitions as well as outlets of famous brands. You can get close to the horses and the jockeys who let the crowds get near and caress their animals.

We arrived at 4 pm (races start at 1pm) on Wednesdays and Friday, but check the calendar on their website. There's an outside and also an inside area (free entry) where you can choose from a limited menu and also place bets on horses. There's also a VIP area with a casino but they request formal wear and an entry... More

We live in Naples, FL and wanted to show something to our kids that they would never see in our hometown. The old French style building is still as beautiful as I imagine it was 60 years ago. I strongly suggest you go on-line and you call to confirm whether they have races the day you want to go and... More

Not much to see the moment we chose to visit but the architecture of the building is impressive. Large racetrack. We wandered down to The Palace where Designer Outlet was opening. Not of interest compared to European outlets but at least you have a view of racetrack from the back.

If you are a lover of horse races, you will love the Hippodrome. I hate waiting a long time between races, and are easy bored, There is an outdoor section which is a restaurant, which served middle of the line food. Nothing to write home about, especially being bored by the long waits. I will not return!

Worth a look, great architecture and the racing track is huge and very famous. It's opposite the Polo centre and there is plenty more to see on that road. A huge pokie area as well for those that need a fix.....

We are into horse racing in the states so a visit to the track here is a no brainer. The Grounds are open for walking,watching horses training in the early morning and a casino. There is a Starbucks within walking distance with plenty of parking near the rose park.

Beautiful French architecture. The most amazing things I found are free entry and you can actually walk around the paddocks where the horses are. You can't do that in racetracks in the US. The horses are lined up according to race and you can get very close to them before the races. Entry into the "VIP" area is 25 pesos... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
