Elegant and beautiful architecture. The boulevards are magnificent.

In my opinion, one of the most beautiful in Latin America (and maybe the whole american continent): the Water Company Palace. Though it looks like a royal palace, it was built to hold a huge water tank, among other 2 on the highest points of the city. Today, the place is being shared by the museum of water and state offices.

Paz Palace / Military Circle:


Buenos Aires had one of the biggest repertoires of Single-Family palaces in the world. Probably, the most important one is the Paz Palace, bought decades ago by the Argentine Army, being the Military circle today. The palace was the residence of José C. Paz, who chose the architectural style called Beaux-Arts, often used in the aristocracy of the country of that era, characterized by its bilateral symmetry (if we cut the building in half, both part look the same). This palace represents, once again, the ideals of progress of Argentina at the ending of the 19th century, an ideal who kept going for the next decades. The architect was Louis Sortais, who designed it and supervised it from France without ever coming to the city (a very common method in those times). Inside, it is a huge labyrinth of more than 140 rooms and details who seem taken from the Chateau of Versailles.


The Paz Palace has a direct view to the San Martín square. where most of this huge palaces were built in the past. A complete different city back then, with kilometers of incredible residences in front of the river from the Downtown to the north of Buenos Aires. The Paz Palace became today one of the most iconic buildings of the city, being in the top 5 buildings to visit among the Casa Rosada and the Barolo Palace.


Here are the images:
