    The President’s decision making place
    The President’s Pink House (Casa Rosada) where Argentina’s major decisions are made. Well worth a visit, and while in the area, visit the museum housing things owned or used by previous Argentinian presidents. I enjoyed the historical walk.

    Iconic site
    In January 2024 tours inside the building were not taking place. But it's worth a visit to this iconic site, especially after watching the movie Evita! There are other things in the area to visit while you are here such as museums, churches, and Florida St.

    Iconic building on the Plaza de Mayo
    The Casa Rosada is the presidential/government official building, right on the Plaza de Mayo amidst other historic buildings. It is a unique shade of pink, and has the famous balconies where Eva Peron gave her speech (or sang, in the film version) so it's pretty well known. We didn't go inside (I'm not sure whether tours were available when we visited) but it was nice to see the exterior, and see the historic and iconic building that we'd heard so much about.

This visit was a true experience to gain insight into Argentinian history as well as to see the Office of the President. The tour was well conducted and each of the rooms in the building explained. You must book in advance exactly 15 days prior, and tours are only available on Saturdays. Standing on the balcony where Eva Peron addressed the people is truly memorable.

On the eastern side of Plaza de Mayo. Famous for colour. Eva Peron addressed supporters from the balcony. It is now the Argentine president's office. Free 1 hour guided tours on weekends but have to book online and bring ID.

Built between 1862 and 1885. Casa Rosada (Pink House) is the Argentine Presidential Palace. No longer used as a residence (the Presidential Residence is located in the suburb of Olivos), the Pink House houses the presidential offices and ceremonial rooms. Evita Peron addressed the crowds from the balcony. Ox blood was mixed with white wash to ceate the distinctive pink color. Tours of the interior must be arranged in advance online. There is a Casa Rosada Museum behind the building which is open to the public.

The built has its significant role as they President's location. It overlooks the Great Plaza de Mayo and it's location for the Major Demonstrations of this country. If you have seen the movie Evita starring Madonna then it is from the Balcony overlooking the Square she sang the Don't Cry For Me Argentina . A beautiful Plaza n a Sad plaza with much history enfolded therein.

We visit it a lot of times, but our first visit was at the 5.1.2020.
Looks amazing but was a shame that we couldn't enter and have a tour inside it...
By the way you should visit it at night and see the beautiful pink colour that is different from the morning.
Don't forget to go around and see it from behind, you will see an amzing statue abive the ceilling of the pink house.

It flourished in Macros short term as well as the city with an Instagram account and hidroponics garden for their consumption. It will probably fell in decay per the socialist regime once again. Not worth visiting

It’s unclear to me if Casa Rosada is permanently closed to the public or under construction. I’m guessing closed. In Nov, 2019, there was fencing all around and construction at the building. Apparently the museum ( history of Argentina’s government) is in a new museum behind Casa Rosada. And that’s worth a quick visit.Better if you read Spanish. It’s too bad that Casa Rosada is closed, at least for now.

It’s possible to visit and well worth your while. We had a private tour arranged by friends and it was conducted by one of the palace staff. We even got lucky as when we were leaving we were held up as the President was arriving by helicopter and we saw him land and walk in. If you tour don’t miss the Evita suite of rooms. There is a balcony that was used in the film Evita for Madonas famous speech and song to the people. Historically the real Evita gave the speech from the balcony of another building (the white one) across the plaza from the Casa Rosada.
