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.

  • Beautiful on the outside. There were two exhibitions, one of the centenary of the Russian Revolution and another of Gabriel García Márquez. I wanted to see the last one, but it has not been possible. I don't speak Spanish, but I did very well on my stay in Buenos Aires. But I couldn't understand a word of the security that was in the driveway gate. I asked as I did to get in, and she made no matter to speak more slowly or help me understand somehow.

  • We went to visit her and learned that there was a concert by the Orchestra of South America. We toured the building to modern style and is very good but the whole place lack maintenance, a penalty. Then we saw this free concert which was excellent and so you can see, the place always offers plenty of extra activities to its main function. The area where it is, Recoleta, is wonderful. Recommended.

  • I attended the presentation of a book in the room of Jorge Luis Borges. The room is comfortable and very spacious. It is a building where perceived lack of maintenance, both abroad and in the services. The biggest problem that is difficult to access from the street. The ramps are long and stairs do not have handrails. Older people or people with reduced abilities do not have an elevator from the street. You have to request special permission to enter by the entry of "Suppliers" (sic) information as the signs do not exist. Exit is another Odyssey.

  • Beautiful building; Hours extended surrounded by gardens (call them squares.) Cultural activities on weekends. The most comprehensive national authors. Besides providing books for 16 days presenting ID and payslip to its name. In the same area is the Museum of the book and the language. I went on the night of the museums and witnessed a very interesting talk
