PASAJE de la DEFENSA, Buenos Aires

(4.2/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located in the San Telmo district, found the place decayed and old. Came to give even a bad impression with the appearance of dumped and dirty. I do not recommend, has the most interesting places in the neighborhood.
