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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.

  • Exelent!!
  • 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.
