Government Building Architectural Building
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.

  • Guided from the members entrance. It is exciting to explore this architectural work, which happens to be one of the world's largest legislative buildings. Traveled a little more than one hour without can be complete. I suggest to find out previously that places are available for the visit since spaces ranging is conditioned on events can be carried out at that time, so there are visits that can be done in a very partial. There are no visits the days of session.

  • The architecture of this building, is wonderful. Of course that it could make him missing, more maintenance. Just know it, on the outside, i.e. speak of its facade. The square which is in front, they are remodeling it, and I think it is going to look much.

  • the Congress Palace is in itself an architecturally important building. Square is important especially in the source, which is usually water dnazantes shows. Then there are demonstrations against the Congress giving a local color. The neighborhood is also worthy of visit (Mayio Avenue, passage Barolo etc),

  • good place to study
  • be there. open for everybody
  • Incredible place although more lockers, would miss him more tables and outlets to work. The other bad thing (outside the building) is that when there is any protest outside, there is a lot of noise. After that, it is super silent

  • An interesting silence, wifi, different rooms, clean bathrooms and even a cinema with interesting Billboard and free. The incredible truth

  • It was a great place, with the only flaw that not is I could take anything to eat or drink (understandable), today I returned from several months of not coming, there are more arrangements and light, but less tables to study in good condition, less plugs work well and today for some reason, almost for the entire library there is a loud noise as if they were moving a table from one side to another... VERY molesto(espero lo arreglen pronto)

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.
