  • Very pretty the pink house. The day I went, I had school excursions. A lot of cops around. It's right in the middle of Plaza de Mayo.

  • Casa Rosada is the headquarters of the Argentine Government and is located in the Plaza de Mayo. We made the free guided tour that is very good and can be scheduled on the site 15 days in advance. It is an opportunity to know some more of the history of Argentina. It's worth it.

  • Coming to Buenos Aires and not visiting the Casa Rosada is equal to go to Rome and not visit the Vatican, then descend to Puerto Madero

  • Interesting place to visit and learn something about its history. Free guided tours in several languages. You need to register online 2 weeks in advance.
  • The palace is not really pink (the name has its inspiration in the White House, US) , but it's a kind of rose. Once it was the presidential house, but, today, not anymore. It's fantastic, full of rich details. You can schedule a guided tour inside the house( it's available in three languages: English, Portuguese and Spanish). In this tour you can see a astounding red velvet lift with a beautiful crystal chandelier (it's so vintage, I found interesting and beautiful)
  • Whether you like Evita or not, Madonna immortalised this place. Although in the film she sang from the wrong balcony that from which Evita spoke to the people at that occasion. If you stand outside in front of the building, it will let you see the film “Evita” in a different light and will you probably want to see it when you get back to your home country. The name comes from the mixture of blood and white, the colours of the two opposing parties in Argentine. In front of the Casa Rosada is a square. There you will see painted on the pavement and ground white scarves, the sign of the woman of Argentine who supported Eva Peron. Eva Peron is still a contentious issue to some people, so don’t be to outspoken about it. Be that as it may walking round the square and looking at the architecture of Casa Rosada from different angles makes for interesting photography. Don’t underestimate the intricate architecture as you need more time to see the details. A word of caution, it can become hot in the square and the sun can burn you. So beware also of dehydrating. Stop somewhere and have a cold beer, maybe two.
  • English language tour was scattered and contained fairly bland information. The tour guide really meant well, but had a strong accent, spoke quickly, and used tons of filler words which made it hard to understand, even for a native English speaker who frequently listens to English with Argentinean accent. The palace is alright, but is in a bit of disrepair and you did not get to see much.
  • Beautiful building and an incredibly important square overall for Argentinian history.
