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.

  • Around 1890, doctor José Camilo Paz, journalist and Argentine politician, founder of the La Prensa newspaper, commissioned the French architect Louis-Marie Henri Sortais the design of this impressive Palace (ex - Peace Palace) as a residence for his family. The building, one of the major exponents of the French academic style in the city, began to be built at the beginning of the 20th century under the direction of the engineer Carlos Agote. Its owner died in 1912 and did not see the completion of the work, opened two years later. His wife and children lived in the Palace until 1938, when it was purchased as the seat of the military circle (a club of the army) and the Museum of arms of the nation.
