  • The work they have done in the cabildo is beautiful. Like all cultural activities in Santiago, is you can not be an exception, the entrance is insignificant. If you travel to this city not miss this Museum, has from the more ancient to the most futuristic

  • The Cultural Center for the bicentennial is a great idea, beautifully specifically. On the basis of the old Cabildo, building symbolic if any in the history of argentina, and keeping its structure and historical appearance, it has built a modern and comprehensive, cultural centre that brings together inside an intense cultural activity. First, know the building is worth, both historic and modern. Second, their central Esplanade is a permanent activity location, where in addition to attend an event, you can go to eat, drink, or sit and read. Finally, the Center brings together three very interesting museums in the province: the fine arts, the anthropology and history. All three focus on the region to which it belongs Santiago: NOA. And that already makes it very valuable in times of globalized culture and ready-to-wear. The one that I liked most is the fine arts, which has a modern worldview of curating and opens the doors to young artists who do not always find space to exhibit and give to know his work. And loose point to my is historic, because I stayed in a historiography to my outdated, based on Hispanic and not the multicultural heritage of mixture (forced the more than times) between the original and the outsider. Being mother of cities played him Santiago a trick in this case. If you are Santiago, come to be proud of this work. If you're visiting, don't miss meet a Santiago or imagine.
