    Entrance is completely free to this 17.241 acres triangular shaped Botanical Garden between Santa Fe Avenue, Las Heras Avenue and República Arabe Siria Street. It was opened in 1898 and incorporates many different types of beautiful trees and plants from around the world, one of its highlights is an impressive English-style mansion. The large greenhouse, and a butterfly house were both closed, but there were many different sculptures and fountains scatted amongst its fabulous French and English-style gardens to see. It really is a peaceful place to walk or sit on the benches under the shade of trees and watch the day go by.

    TIP: The best time to visit is early in the morning, as there’s almost no one there.

    It was located in the center of Recoleta near the famous cemetery of the same name. In 1732, Jesuit architects designed the building in the Gothic Revival style as a home for Recoleta friars.
    Over time, it has been a school, hospital, and shelter for homeless people until the 1970s.
    After renovating in the 1980s, it was turned into an exhibition and cultural center, where concerts, artistic presentations, and workshops of diverse kinds are held, especially for young artists.
    Check out its event calendar for upcoming events.
    TIP: It even has a beautiful terrace with sculptures overlooking the park.

    Every time we go to Buenos Aires in the winter we take our kids to La Rural where they have a farm exhibition. It is definitely worth the trip. You will see live auctions of the animals, stands of each province selling their local delicacies and clothing, all types of farm animals and farming equipment. You can get a nice bbq while visiting and catch a glimpse at the horses be exhibited with horse show included on certain days.

    The National library of Argentina is absolutely huge. It is not my favourite library in the city due to the fact that it isn't very aesthetic from the outside and it looks old and worn. Despite this, the interior is quite the opposite and there are some very modern aspects to the place. The most notable mention however, is found on the top floor which is a communal study space and offers stunning views of the city.

    The Matta cultural centre, attached to the Chilean embassy in Buenos Aires, is exhibiting some of the works of the famous Chilean surrealist. The exhibit is on until Jan 22, 2016.
    Not many people are familiar with Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren; but he is considered one of the important surrealists of the twentieth century. He was born in Santiago de Chile in 1911 where he studied architecture. In 1934 he went to Paris to complete his studies. In the following three years he travelled around Europe and established contacts with several artists and intellectuals of the period such as Garcia Lorca, Pablo Picasso, Andre Breton, Salvador Dali among others. In 1939 he immigrated to the US where he spread the ideas of surrealism among young US artists and finalized his theories about art, science and poetry. In the mid sixties he moved to Italy where he lived till his death in 2002.
    My wife, who is an artist herself, and I learned about his exhibition in Buenos Aires just before arriving and made it a point to visit as soon as possible, which we did Jan 6. It was a pleasant walk, on that sunny day, from Recoleta along” Avenida Del Libertador”, through the woods of Palermo “Bosques de Palermo” to “Tagle” street. The entrance to the cultural centre is in the back of the embassy and you can reach it through the park, “Plaza Republica de Chile”. The exhibition is not only free, but the very friendly staff will also offer you a valuable book about the artist, his work, theories and thoughts “Matta, Este Lado Del Mundo”, Matta this side of the world.
    We loved the selection of art work exhibited, a couple of which is on loan from the MALBA museum of Buenos Aires. There is also a 45 minutes documentary, narrated by Matta himself, about his ideas and approach to surrealistic creations. We found this an excellent documentary, very interesting and thought provoking.
    By the time we finished it was time for lunch and “Tabak Café”. As usual, the “Lomito Al Plato” was excellent.
    I hope you will have a chance to enjoy this unusual exhibition and opportunity to meet and learn about Roberto Sebastian Matta.

    This urban trekking is a very interesting alternative to the most popular hop-on/hop-off tour. However is a bit long if you are going to spend only a few days in the city. It offers a different point of view of the city, because you will have to walk across the avenues and among the people who lives there. On the other hand, guides used to be people that live in and studied about the city. They narrate some historical and political events and describe cultural and architectural aspects.

    A used book store--all titles in English. What a relief to find this store after the disappointment of El Ateneo. Nice little shop near San Telmo. Definitely swing by here after stopping at the Feria de San Telmo.
