Palacio de Tribunales, Buenos Aires

4.2
Don't miss Palacio de Tribunales, a large building that seats the Supreme Court, and an emblem of Buenos Aires. Built in the early 20th century in a grandiose, eclectic neoclassical style, with its ornately chiseled facade of decorated arches and columns, the building has been declared a National Historic Landmark. As you step inside to survey the equally impressive interior, pay special attention to the intricate mosaic designs on the floor, as well as the 3 m (10 ft) statue sculpted by Rogelio Yrurtia, which represents justice.

  • It was the first Palace that I met in my childhood and is that every day that happened or entered transmits me magnificence. Really is beautiful symmetry that has, probably with the same thoroughness of the idea of Justice which houses. Just go up the main staircase to admire the entrance hall and see a beautiful and huge bronze statue representing justice. The hearings and agreements of the Supreme Court of Judticia of the room, the library and the courtyard of honour are must-see places for the beauty that has the solid setting. In recent years the building has been maintained very well both inside and outside that night lights as this heritage deserves.

  • It is a beautiful building. An amazing architecture. Your lighting is very nice night. We must go on schedule of courts to enter between 7.30 and 13.30. The area is not very nice for walking at night

  • If you are in Buenos Aires and I found close to the Teatro Colon, you can go through the courts Palace. Plaza of through, the courthouse is almost facing to the Teatro Colón. Indeed, many initially confuse them. But courts is unmistakable to those who travel there daily because the movement of men and women in suits between 7:30 to 13:30 reveals the place. After that time, 2 pm, and there is less crowded area. When you finally find the Palace of courts, come and go. You will only have to undergo a scanner your bag or backpack. You will surprise a giant image of Justice and you can go smoothly its halls and climb on their old elevators. If you dare, opened the door of a courthouse to see the cluster of stationery and how to work still in Argentina in the administration of Justice. The address, Talcahuano 550.
