I never heard of Xul Solar until I found a couple of lines in a travelers guide that said something about a "cartoonish style" of painting, and that was enough to get me interested. I walked there after a half day of being fried under...More

Xul Solar is a character like no other. His painting is shocking and original and his biography is absolutely unique. Trained as a musician and an architect he travelled extensively around Europe and absorbed all kind of influences. Back in Argentina he made close friendship...More

The Museo Xul Solar houses Xul Solar's surrealist work in his former home. The museum has tons of his paintings. The only drawback to the museum is that they don't offer much guidance (e.g., map, or path to get around), but the space isn't hard...More

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
