It is one of the 3 best opera houses in the world. I highly recommend a guided tour through the theatre, and if you have the time and/or budget, watching a play.

I have now done two tours of the Teatro ( which recently underwent a $100 million dollar refurbishing). The tours are well done and the space is astounding. On the recent tour they were rehearsing an opera. As a result we could not see the...More

A visit to the Opera House is a must for anyone who loves architecture let alone music. This building is beautiful from the inside and the central theatre is beautifully made. Make sure you get the tour tickets.

Beautiful building with. Lot of history. Worth visiting. If you can go see the opera, the acoustics are incredible. It has been recently renovated and it looks fantastic.

This is one of the most impressive and Important Theatre in the World. Take your time to visit Inside the building and outside. Many activities besides Operas.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
