We couldn't get it despite the fact that they run tours inside, but as an Architecture lover, I have to say that this is one of the most amazing buildings in the city. Apparently the glazed bricks and ceramics were brought in from the UK,...More

Be sure to walk in & when it's open go upstairs to one of the most surprising museums in the world. Don't want to say more because it will spoil the fun.

Try to get a tour inside this building, so you get to understand the history behind it. It used to be the water holding tank for big part of the city. Since it was located in a posh area, the neighbors demanded a good looking...More

Certainly a European looking kind of building. I loved the outside for pictures, especially when the sun was going down. Interesting how it is a water company. Nicest one I have every seen.

albert436's question about men's hats got me to thinking about where I picked up a hat some years ago and reminded me of our recent visit and pulling our car over to the curb on Avenida Cordoba in Balvanera to gasp once again at the eternal beauty and architectural magnificence of the Palacio de Aguas Corrientes (Palace of Flowing Waters) - an old water pumping station that takes up an entire city block and is a French renaissance-designed structure of epic proportions. Stunning. Inspiring....More

Hi Elfdoug! Totally agree! The Palacio de Aguas Corrientes must be one of the most beautiful buildings in Buenos Aires. I also love the Palacio Estrugamou on Esmeralda and Juncal - always wanted to pretend that I wanted to rent a place there to be able to get in and see it from the inside. The Edificio Bencich on Cordoba & Esmeralda is breathtaking as well. I have been to one of the apartments there and it was stunning. Maybe one day I'll make enough to live in one of these...More
