Embassy of France in Buenos Aires






The Embassy of France is the last of the mansions of the axis of the Alvear Avenue. It is one of the most important examples of the Beaux Arts residences in the country, built by the wave of french architects who lived in their country (mostly in Paris). They usually sent the projects from overseas to Argentina, though at the same time they almost never came to the country (supervising the construction from France). The owners of this beauty were the Basualdo-Zapiolas, who sold it a fews years later to the nation of France, who loved the details of the palace, most of them inspired by french, english, and even norwegian palaces. The place was recently restored in what was one of the most iconic restorations of the last few decades in Buenos Aires.

Anchorena Palace



San Martín Palace (Palacio San Martín) is located facing Plaza San Martín in the Retiro neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina and serves as the Ceremonial Headquarters for the Ministry of Foreign Relations. The Beaux Arts style palace was designed for Mercedes Castellanos de Anchorena by the architect Alejandro Christophersen in 1905. Finished in 1909, the building was acquired by the Argentine government in 1936 and became the Headquarters for the Ministry of Foreign Relations. A new headquarters was completed in 1993, and at present the palace serves as the Ceremonial Headquarters for the Ministry. The palace contains many works of art by Argentine and American artists from the 20th century, such as Antonio Berni, Pablo Curatella Manes, Lino Enea Spilimbergo, and Roberto Matta.

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:

Bencich Palace - Buenos Aires





As a complement of the biggest mansions such as the San Martin Palace or the Paz Palace, quite a big number of wealthy residences also were built: the famous "petit-hôtels", with a strong influence (again) from France and its architecture. Though some of these buildings can be seen all around Buenos Aires, most of them are in the north of the city in neighborhoods like Recoleta, Retiro, and the Microcentro. Inside this category of architectural style, there's the Bencich Palace, one of the best conserved examples, nowaday used for private events and exclusive parties.

Casal de Catalunya





The Casal of Catalunya is a hidden gem on the neighborhood of San Telmo. It is the oldest house of Catalonia outside Spain and it is currently a cultural centre. The first building of the Casal is part of the modernism style (it actually is a portrayal the modernism of Catalonia), made by the essential Julián García Nuñez, a very important architect for the modernism in Buenos Aires, and Campllonch. The second building has a neocolonial style, which is a revival of the old spanish style in the colonies of the Americas. However, as usual in Buenos Aires, it is a mixture of other styles. Inside the buildings, you may see neogothic details, like some of the doors and the ornaments of the chandeliers.
