If you are in the neighborhood, stop and admire the architecture, the building is used for government purposes now but it is a lovely example of the style of the times..

We recognised the Parisian flair of Buenos Aires in the San Martin Palace which was inspired in the French architecture of the 18th century. San Martin Palace is today the Ceremonial venue of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship.
