  • The green space of memory, sis silent spaces and move away from the hubbub of the city and its cultural center are what I like, it is a space to explore, remember and reflecionar, as well as to appreciate the nature or cultural. Cultural center Conti, is undoubtedly by the exhibitions and the permanent replacement of the same permanent and obligatory visit, the quality of the samples exhibiting there is very good. Also has a café and a bookshop which wide rainy days, the options of the output.

  • In the place where ESMA stands now the memory space. A place that must travel to get to know one of the darkest pages in the history of argentina. The tour is very hard but necessary

  • Tiene muchas pokestops
  • Impactante, imprescindible su visita
  • Historical site - a must see - a learning place for humanity
  • Excellent throughout the campus. When you do by the streets you becomes dense. The story that people there lived inside revives in each door, window, wall, and not only in the posters. Everyone should walk out there, at least once in our life. The museums inside, (the Malvinas, Haroldo Conti, etc), are very interesting and overflow our collective memory. I wish all areas were upgraded, since there are many closed spaces that overflow with furnishings, and could be used / enabled.
