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. Put Congreso into our Buenos Aires vacation builder website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is linda cultural area, but there are always manifestations. They must beware of circular there when there are demonstrations.

  • We were on tour in Spanish, it's free, but it was pretty disorganized and the Guide roll too. Only go if you have time to spend on the tour. I really liked the library, and the Blue lounge, wonderful.

  • Constantly with social conflicts, hurdles and lack of care. A shame because it is a beautiful building in a very nice place to visit.

  • Simple Academy, but the price is affordable and for those who have the experience to give you a good workout. Pay 130 pesos. In the Center we came to see gyms charge 450 pesos. Suggestion is to provide water, because it only has to sell.
