If you go without knowing much of the city's history, you might not enjoy it. Much of the original fabric of this part of the city has not been properly preserved and the curation of this historic space is choppy at best. You may enjoy...More

The place has been neglected for year, according to the Argentinian culture of not preserving the past. Vast parts of the building have dessapeared or demolished to make room for a parking lot. So sad. The famous tunnels, are not open to visitors, just a...More

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
