PASAJE de la DEFENSA, Buenos Aires

Contemplate how wealthy Argentinians lived during the 19th century at PASAJE de la DEFENSA. This mansion-turned-gallery was home to the Ezieza family and has served a variety of purposes over the years. After being residence to the Eziezas, it was an institution for the deaf and mute. It then again served as a residential house before being renovated in 1980 to restore its original architectural style. The house is now a commercial gallery. Three courtyards characterize the ground floor, plus there's one on the upper level surrounded by rooms. You can buy antiques, paintings, and souvenirs here.

    Is an example of the fantastic residential spaces of the past of the capital. Transformed into commercial space, keep the charm of the past in Buenos Aires. The antique shops there's very high prices today.

    Cute, is a space divided into three courtyards, each one has handicrafts shops in skins, and antiques, are few, the place is not restored what prints you an atmosphere that takes you to the past.

    Nice place. Vintage style. There is a coffee place inside. 5 or 6 craft shops. Interesting place to stop by.

    Nice backyard, espacially the cafe on the first floor (Que bueno que viniste) I can highly recommend! The waiter explained us the mate-ritual, I had delicous medialunas and my girlfriend nice empanadas. Very good prices and nice service! Must-visit ;-)

    For tourists who want to know how it was a TENEMENT (site where the old immigrants lived with their families in small rooms and shared a great place in common) is very interesting visit on Sundays; already is in the heart of San Telmo, also that day assembled in that street, small antiques posts and many fun shows... pure history of the old Buenos Aires

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.
