  • Visit it was a return to the past. Well maintained building. It shows respect for the old things that were important and valuable for a country. It has only guided tours but it is possible to visit a library area. The building is like living in another time, the scales, all. It is a Yes or if you visit it. It is next to the Casa Rosada by what the sector is very travel. Here the House of culture of the Ministry of culture, where was formerly the press works.

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.
