(May 2015) In my personal opinion, walking through the old neighborhoods to get here was just as beautiful and interesting as the shopping center itself. My photo is of the "back" entrance I suppose - artsy and fun looking, as opposed to the "normal" looking entrance that appears the same as any mall in the USA. Regardless, this space is... More

This place came recommended on my guide book as a beautiful old shopping place but was actually very disappointed that it was just another big modern shopping mall (though it had an indoor amusement park at the top floor). You can't really tell it is an old repurposed building. Not worth the time.

On our hotel’s recommendation, we took a taxi to see this huge 4-story Art Deco shopping center on Corrientes. The stores were more mid-range, but the huge food court had everything you could ask for. At the top level was a children’s game area, arcade, and a Museo de Los Ninos. There was a huge ferris wheel at the top... More

There's something here for virtually every budget. Bring the kids because there is an amusement park of sorts on the top level. The food court has something to suit every taste - there's even a kosher McDonald's. The building itself, dating back to the late 1800's is quite impressive with massive curved ceilings of glass and entire four story walls... More

You'll find everything at the most accessible price. The food court is good, I recommend the veggie menues at Green and Co. It has two Starbucks, a full cinema, arcades and more. Tip: never leave your personal belongings unattended, the mall surroundings are filled with marginals who go there to take advantage of distracted people.

Just another mall. The food court was pretty good and it has all the standard stores so if you want to do some shopping, it's definitely the place to go. But the area around the mall did not seem very safe.

Maybe one of the largest malls in the center of the city. Many good stores that are low to high range on prices. The mall also has a large movie theater.

Ride the subway to get there, lots of attractions on the way.... definitely worth checking out. Lots of specialized stores and stuff for the kids to do. (Kids museum of some kind) Very stylish as well.
