  • 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.

  • This is another beautiful preserved building in downtown Buenos Aires. Is historic because it was the seat of a major newspaper.
