Owner description: The government’s executive branch is housed in this building, a strange mix of various architectural styles, perhaps best known for the balcony from which Evita rallied the working class crowds.

This tour is available on weekends. It is free and is given in English and Spanish. There is an elevator, if needed. Our guide was very informative, and we were so thrilled to be able to tour this place, the equivalent of our White House except that the Argentine first family does not live in Casa Rosada. It is strictly for government business. We saw Eva Peron's office and the door to the balcony where she gave her "Don't cry for me, Argentina" speech. Photographs are allowed. Tour is 1-2 hours with one opportunity to sit down.

On Saturdays ,Sundays,and public holidays you are able to do tours through here. It is where the President works from during the week.It was very interesting. There is no charge.

Equivalent to Houses of Parliament in UK. Saturday and Sunday, doors open to the public for free tours in various languages.Visit numerous rooms,including the ' Eva Peron ' room, and balcony where famous speeches were made.Excellent.

Of course no tour of BA would be complete without seeing this classic site and square. There is also a museum on one right bottom corner as you look at it straight on. The square has the mothers of the lost children (Madres de Plaza de Mayo) protesting every Thursday afternoon at 3pm, very moving.

Imagine having a tour inside the white house, where all the political moves are done, going to the oval office, see the desk where the president sits, pass the assistant desk, going to the press conference room, etc..... Well you can do this in the Argentina Casa Rosada (kind of like the US white house).

I was there on a Saturday morning with a truly small group and had a great almost private tour, where we learned a lot about history, the building itself, the current government and famous Argentinian personalities.

Strongly recommended, and if you go, do so early in the morning (before 10 am) as you will be able to join a tour right away with a small group. If you go after 11 this is where the majority of the tourist arrive so go early.
