    Despite its impressive exterior facade, inside it is not a period Palace. The building was built to House and distribute drinking water to the city of Buenos Aires at the end of the nineteenth century, with 12 tanks of water inside, disused since several decades ago. Today there is a museum with guided visits. Very interesting for those interested in technical aspects of the work.

    Really interesting architectural style of the building. Gave it 4 stars because of the strange opening hours: from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m.

    Lovely place, I wish I had the chance to go on the tour but apparently they close at 1pm and only open Mon to Fri. But I did go into the public area and the bathroom is probably the best public bathroom in all of Argentina.
