What a fabulous building! It is simply stunning, and the stories around it make it more interesting. The tour is well worth the hour of time it takes, and allows you to see this remarkable facility even if you don't get to see a performance.

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.
