It was open in 1908 with Aida of Verdi. The most beautiful opera house in Latin America. Take a ticket to attend one night show of opera. Also ask for a tour of the back stage and installations. Very central near downtown. Must visit.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
