  • The water Palace is the best ancient structures of Buenos Aires. It is to admire it 15 minutes and is in Cordoba and Riobamba. Remove photos and admirelo slowly

  • 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.
  • This place is just amazing. It is literally a monument to water.
  • Incredible building! It has a spectacular view and it really stands out in the street, with it's spectacular architecture.
  • 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.
  • An amazing building for taking photos.
