  • More than beautiful! It has so much history! Here lived Saint Exupéry, was recorded for the film "Evita" with Madonna and Antonio Banderas and even Cortázar I dedicate a chapter to this beautiful Gallery in his tales of "All fires, fire". The architecture is amazing! Restored to 100%. And the viewpoint that has in the 9th floor is a gift for the view, where is sees from the downtown the city of Buenos Aires to the coasts of Uruguay! Inevitable in his visit to Capital!
