Marvel at one of the most magnificent palace estates in Buenos Aires, Palacio Paz. The building exhibits a classic luxurious French atmosphere, and its construction materials were all imported from France. All rooms emit pure elegance, featuring intricate stone carvings, colorful stained glass, mosaic marble floors, and gold trimmed furniture. José C Paz, the owner of a popular newspaper company La Prensa, built the palace privately. Eventually it transformed into a military club and now the palace holds one of Argentina's most important military museums. Guided tours of the palace and museum take place in Spanish and English.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.

  • Excellent Palace from the early 20th century. Eclectic style but mostly French style. Imported building entirely of France. Built by Gainza Paz, owner of the newspaper with the largest circulation in Argentina until the first half of the 20th century. Currently the seat of the military circle. guided tours Saturdays with reservation
