CASA ROSADA (PINK HOUSE) - BUENOS AIRES






In front of the May Square is the Casa Rosada (Pink House), the palace of the Government House of the president of Argentina. Hundreds of years ago, there was in its place the fortress of the city, who in its base were built 2 identic buildings who were united later by Francesco Tamburini with an exotic triumphal arch. Its interiors are part of an astounding palace, worth of the economic power of the country in the lastest years of the 19th Century. The access to the Casa Rosada is allowed only in the saturdays and sundays (which I strongly recommend), and also the Museo del Bicentenario, a new museum of the History of Argentina who was built just in front, where once was the Aduana Taylor.
