“Beautiful conventillo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

I love visiting this place which used to be one big house belonging to a very rich family and was then divided up into small flats for immigrants at the beginning of the 20th century. It's full of small shops now but has the original floors etc.

“Peek into the past and see how the other half used to live”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

There is no entry fee or rush to look around this old mansion. It is a nice break from the avenida Defensa crowds. Although the mansion lacks an extensive interpretive story most guide books and the BA provided historical poster gives a brief explanation to the layout.
Make sure to walk upstairs and poke all around.
