  • In Cordoba a block from Callao, is this wonderful building, which mark us a period of glory of the country. Built on this site since it was at that time one of the highest in the city of that time (35 meters above the sea level) inside which had water reserve tanks coming from the area of the current Palace of fine arts where the purification plant was located. (Buenos Aires was the first city in America to have a purifying plant) Outside was built piece by piece as a puzzle, these pieces specially made in England (thousands of parts that fit perfectly), whose purpose was solely to highlight the importance of the building. We had the fortune to take a guided tour of a world hierarchy on subject of museums professional, who explained in detail the history and functions of the establishment. Then, a biologist, who is in charge of the subject flat (currently tanks hold the plans of every house in the city since ancient times) gave us a Masterful explanation of the topic. In short, incredible visit in a wonderful place.

  • The visit to the Museum of Argentine waters, is better to stay with the beauty of its exterior. inside it has not much to see and your travel is boring.
