Upon construction in 1911, the Belle Epoque building (styled after its Parisienne namesake) served as an ice skating rink and social club, then later as a tango dance hall. Remodelling in the 1930s altered the exterior and converted the interior space into an art gallery; today, it hosts rotating exhibits of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, and ceramics.

  • A place that was originally a track of skating at the beginning of the last century has been transformed into a beautiful Exhibition Centre. It's worth according to the exposure that develops.

  • Inaugurated in 1910 to House an ice rink, as part of a club that were wealthy people, then became a dance hall. In 1932 it was remodeled by architect Alejandro Bustillo and today functions as exhibition centre. Located in the Recoleta district. Its entrance is free. It is worth visiting it.

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.
