Beautiful building. Really looks like you are standing in a European neighborhood with this kind of architecture in front of you. Bring a camera as this building is that pretty. Would not spend all day here, but certainly worth a quick visit.

This is a great sample of the glorious times of very a country with profound ties with Europe. This French style building was ordered by a small group of entrepreneurs Navy officers. You can make a guided tour, but requires prior booking.

We stayed in a hotel just across the street and were very impressed by the beautiful facade and entrance door of this building. Don't miss this when you are working across Florida street.

The centro naval on Avenida Florida has one of the best facades in the downtown district of the city, not too far from Gasa Rosada. The detail in the entry and upper floors is amazing. It is very well preserved example of neo-classical architecture. Unfortunately...More

This is an impressive, if dirty, building in the middle of a somewhat tacky shopping street. It's worth a minute of one's time.

This gem of Buenos Aires architecture has one of the most impressive facades in the whole city. The detail is amazing. It is incredibly and impeccably well preserved. The stunningly executed mansard roof and turret are some of the best examples of neo-classical architecture that...More

I passed by this building as I was walking down Calle Florida. Impressive architecture, but unfortunately you can only go as far as the lobby.

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.,

Epic buildings in Buenos Aires (8 Replies)
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
