Beautiful Foreign Affairs building
Jan 2020 • Couples
This impressive building houses the Foreign Affairs Ministry. I wish we could have seen the interior. It is near the Torre Monumental. Across from the palacio is a monument honoring General San Martin. Visiting dignitaries lay flowers here to honor the Argentinian hero. He is considered the Liberator of Argentina.

Impressive French Beaux Arts Building
Oct 2019
Built in early 1900s as the private residence of one of Argentina's wealthiest families. Later was HQ for Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1936-89). Now used for special events. Sometimes open for tours. Very impressive exterior worth seeing even if you can't go inside. Near Plaza San Martin and short walk from end of Florida Street pedestrian mall.

An ornate colonial building in central Buenos Aires
Dec 2018 • Couples
One of the best preserved old colonial style buildings in Buenos Aires. Impressive exterior and very photogenic.

It would have been nice to see inside, but this did not prove possible when we visited.

Not worth going out of your way for, but nice to see.

Paris?
Jul 2018 • Solo
Really felt like I was standing there in France just by looking at the Euro styled architecture of this building. Certainly beautiful. Check it out if in the area, there are a lot of other points of interest in this part of BA.

This is a old Parisian style architectural design building. The building is beautiful. You can see on your city walk or tour.This is a government building.

If you are in the neighborhood, stop and admire the architecture, the building is used for government purposes now but it is a lovely example of the style of the times..

Beautiful Architecture
Jul 2017 • Couples
We recognised the Parisian flair of Buenos Aires in the San Martin Palace which was inspired in the French architecture of the 18th century. San Martin Palace is today the Ceremonial venue of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship.

Majestic small Palace but closed
Mar 2017 • Solo
From the outside the palace looks great if not that grand compared to others around the world. The front area you can see the stairs but little else

Understand it is rarely open which is dissapointing

Never Open
Oct 2016 • Couples
We went there twice in a week in Buenos Aires and were told it would be open on Thursday at 3 pm for a guided tour in English. But when we get there they tell us to come back tomorrow. Open hours in Argentina are very fluid, which makes it extremely hard to plan.
