  • The visit is based on the statements of those who passed through there, the rooms are very well mounted and guides are excellent, facilitating dialogue and questions. A good place to learn about the recent past of Argentina.

  • If those walls could talk.... a place full of an obscure past where its horrors are palpable and eerie suggested. A must see to acknowledge the past and learn from it. Deeply touching experience.  more »
  • Arriving at the scene is not so complicated, in my case I took a just bondi (bus) to arrive, if the purpose of the trip is to learn about the history of argentina this place is an obligatory point to learn much more about argentina today. All memory space, as a place in which one charged and reflecting on how hard that was that dark period for Argentina. The time I was there there were many available spaces since they were in repairs. Arriving at the huge courtyard where massacred several persons you can breathe, feel, a different environment than the rest of spaces. History teaches us to not make the same mistakes as before, we know it, but sometimes we tend to forget it, this place is there to take advantage of it and know him more.

  • 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.
