Biblioteca Nacional, Buenos Aires

4.0
Stop by and admire Biblioteca Nacional, a landmark of Buenos Aires' Recoleta neighborhood. Occupying the site of the former residence of Juan and Evita Peron, the building--designed by architect Clorindo Testa--boasts a rugged Brutalist design, noted for its use of raw concrete. Browse the library's staggering book collection, roam the thirteen maze-like floors, or rest on a bench in the garden and enjoy the sounds of the fountain. Plan my Buenos Aires trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The biggest and best library of Argentina, located in Recoleta, there is an obligatory stop in Buenos Aires. Opened in 1962, is a very beautiful and peaceful place, filled with classics of world literature and Buenos Aires.
