The Water Palace is an ornate building in Buenos Aires that once had the unique function of supplying water to the entire city. It has long ceased to function as a large water tank and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989.

This fantastical building is worth walking by during a walking tour of the city. It represents the former grandeur of B.A.
