PASAJE de la DEFENSA, Buenos Aires

Architectural Building
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.

  • Nice place. Vintage style. There is a coffee place inside. 5 or 6 craft shops. Interesting place to stop by.
  • I love this place's vintage atmosphere
  • 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 ;-)
  • Particular architectural structure that is part of the history of our city. Affordable to eat, very warm attention.
