Add some history to your itinerary with a visit to Instituto Unzue, a storied building that served as a refuge for orphaned children in the early 20th century. Built in a Neo-Byzantine style, it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1997 and has since been restored. Tour the inside to see the pristine Abyssinian and Carrara marbles, as well as displays of period furnishings. Afterwards, take a stroll through the immaculately manicured gardens.

  • beautiful place of recreation for large and guys, with fairs, and games for kids, too bad that cannot be accessed more to the Church, by subject collapse, a penalty, is the best place

  • The old asylum Unzué is a place steeped in history that was neglected for many years. Luckily some time ago began restorations of different spaces. It has a beautiful chapel with European marble and beautiful stained glass ceiling.
