Took a guided (english) tour and it is worth it. It is a beautiful building. The marble entrance, the chandeliers, the ceiling ... While on the tour on the balcony, they were preparing the stage for a production and you could hear the workers talking...More

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.,
