A former summer retreat of writer Victoria Ocampo, Centro Cultural Villa Victoria Ocampo now hosts art exhibits, plays, and concerts. The wooden house of English design was built for the writer's godmother in 1912 and used to provide the setting for literary salons attended by aristocrats and prominent artists, such as Jorge Luis Borges. Cross the green lawn surrounded by a lush garden to enter the house, and explore rooms filled with antique wooden furniture dating back to the building's early years.

  • I enjoyed tremendously to be in this house. Beautiful place. Victoria Ocampo was one of the most prominent women of her times, an Argentinean woman to be proud of throughout time and social boundaries...  more »
  • Several times I went to the city is the first time I went to this place. Excellent in every aspect. Victoria House is a magical place, transports you to the past. Works of all kinds are exposed on the ground floor and on the upper part of the House is all the furniture that the author use in their days. To be low season the place to enjoy it in a unique way, tranquility, more that anything when it comes to taking pictures (I'm photographer by hobby) and photograph so much beauty with so much confidence is, at least to me, priceless. Very friendly hosts. Really a forced walk.

  • The Villa Victoria is a place to keep in mind when you visit Mar del Plata. The old House very well kept and preserved offers spaces where various cultural activities take place. Touring its gardens to observe plants that give a beautiful framework constitute a very good option.
