What a magnificent place to visit. We were on an art tour in BA with Camiba Art and I am so glad they took us here. We were lucky enough to witness an opera rehearsal. Don’t miss it if you are in Buenos Aires

Beautiful building and lovely tour/guide. Well worth the entrance fee. In our opinion more grand than La Scala. Got the chance to sit in the stalls and “sing” Sole mio or Just One Cornetto. Nobody objected.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave.,
