  • The building La Prensa is without a doubt the most iconic specimen from the avenida de mayo in its splendour, becoming a clear sign technical and artistic era

  • I visited the building on the night of the museums. It has many details of time, stucco, ceilings, atesonados, and a small shop with postcards and books at good prices.

  • The building is on avenida de mayo metres from plaza de mayo and the Peru underground station. The press originated as the center of the newspaper, is today the municipal government. We visited him on the night of the museums watching your salon with a decorated super roof. And recommend from Avenue see a dome where sculpture was holding a lamp.
