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.

  • It is one of the ancient houses of Buenos Aires built there by the year of 1876, a traditional Creole families, Ezeiza family, families that when it comes to Buenos Aires yellow fever left and migrated to areas more safe and busy for people with less economic power. Some of its rooms have become ateliers, antique shops, bars, or craft workshops. Either in one of its ground floor patios or in the galleries above is can share a drink, listen to music, or simply sit down and see how he passes the time. Highly recommended.

  • 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.

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.
