Begun in 1898 and completed in 1906, the national landmark of Congreso houses the Congress of Argentina. Built in the neoclassical style, the stately building stands on the Calle de Mayo. Outside, inspect the exterior's aesthetic touches added by Argentinian artists. You can take a tour of the inside, which shows you such historical spaces as the pink room, where women's suffrage was debated. If planning to take the tour, check before you go: they offer English tours only on certain days. Make Congreso a part of your Buenos Aires vacation plans using our Buenos Aires itinerary builder.

  • Really worth visiting to take souvenir photos. Is a very beautiful building and unlike what I saw here, is very well maintained and clean. I don't know if there is the possibility of visits to the country, I don't think why is he in full operation. The avenues around are well accessible and busy, one of the accesses to subway is located next door. The square in front of it has a lot of homeless and etc. CAREFUL, unlike many other points of interest, doesn't have a lot of security. (she focuses exclusively on Congress). Always happen protests in 6 days I was there were 2. Recommend a cup of coffee in the region, in the left corner has an excellent restaurant called notable victoria, very typical and quite frequented by politicians, has every kind of meal. (It will seem expensive for the environment, most make no mistake, note the promotions at the entrance) Recommend for a good picture.

  • Imposing and beautiful, where houses the Congress of argentina. Located at the Plaza of Congresos is a great place to chat and take some corn to give the pigeons!

  • The imposing and historic building which houses the Congress of Argentina is in dire need of a restoration as it is dark and without much care. It's still very cool and yields good pictures with the Plaza Del Congreso. It stands beside the Congreso Metro stations.

  • Uma excelente pizzaria ao melhor estilo argentino. Bastante massa e um queijo delicioso. Caso gostes de pizzas finas, há outros locais que serão melhores para você. O atendimento é bom, mas o preço não é tão convidativo.
