The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.

I’ve never entered the building for a tour, but you can tell it’s simply majestic. Would like to see it from the inside. Updated review will follow + pics.

This is a gorgeous embassy in an upscale neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. Walking around here is splendid, in the direction of Recoleta. Just be careful on a Sunday or holiday when the streets are quiet as there are gangs that play the game of "squirt" one spraying foul fish oil on you, the other pretending to help you clean it up, while a third picks your pocket, purse, or backpack.
