The Casa Rosada of Buenos Aires
We know that there’s no Buenos Aires trip itinerary that doesn’t include a visit to the famous Casa Rosada, the most famous building in Plaza de Mayo.
Located at 50 Balcarce Street, in the Montserrat neighborhood of Buenos Aires, in front of Plaza Mayo, is the official residence of the President of Argentina, officially known as Government House, which is also home to the Casa Rosada Museum, founded in 1950 and is one of the most impressive collections of Argentine history.
The construction of the current Government House began in 1873, when by decree it was ordered to build the Post and Telegraph building on the corner of Balcarce and Hipólito Yrigoyen, which with a beautiful Italianate style, occupies an area of almost a block, and in 1942 was declared a National Historic Monument.
On Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays, free tours are offered in English, starting at 10 am, a must-see visit to learn more about the history of this architectural wonder, full of many stories.
