  • It has so many details that it's amazing. What most impressed me was the Golden Hall, although the entire building is an example of the architecture of yesteryear. It has guided tours free, very good, I recommend them, guides are excellent.

  • It is a spectacular building, necessary step if one runs along the Avenida de Mayo from end to end. Today operates a municipal unit.

  • Interesting building already is home to a large newspaper, beautiful architecture of the early 1900s, daughter of European cities of the time.
