  • Beautiful place to visit! The streets are not very nice at night but it is a must tour visit! I suggest you go with visited guide tours they are really complete!
  • A great place for art exhibitions and musical shows, it consists of a large space with many auditoriums and sufficient structure for several simultaneous events (most free). Check the schedule in advance, and arrive at least an hour or two before the event to pick up the tickets.
  • A very interesting place for art, and it's history. A jewel.
  • Interesting site and georgeous building (complete with imported English red brick), which has been reinstated to lift a long ignored part of La Boca. Known as the art factory (fabrica de arte), by the locals and offers some excellent international exhibitions whilst the surrounding streets are filled with street art from an international collection of muralists. Don't stray too far South (stay within a two block radius), as it is a complicated neighbourhood.
  • Beautiful place, excellently restored. Location is not too great, not many bus lines come this way.
