We walked from Recoleta in 30 min. They have transformed an old vegi/meat market to a modern mall. The ceiling is great!. Most of the popular stores from Recoleta are there. We felt very safe in the mall, but would only go during the day. Could be unsafe after dark!!!

The shopping mall is good and modern medium size. I didn't buy anything because the stuff all very expensive than what I could get them in New Zealand. If you don't speak Spanish it is good to learn some basic as most Argentinan don't speak English.

Its a fascinating art deco building, has rides and amusements, a great food court with some of the best cakes I've ever had, and always has a fun, family-friendly atmosphere all year round. Its magical at Christmas time.

If you're used to western-style shopping centres like Westfield, this place is underwhelming. It seems just like any other mid-level western mall, nothing special.

There are some amusement rides for children on the top level and a huge food court on the level below. The mall seems to cater to a younger crowd but has more exclusive stores. Very clean. Be cautious after leaving the mall since pickpockets tend to roam Avda Corrientes.

(May 2015) In my personal opinion, walking through the old neighborhoods to get here was just as beautiful and interesting as the shopping center itself. My photo is of the "back" entrance I suppose - artsy and fun looking, as opposed to the "normal" looking entrance that appears the same as any mall in the USA. Regardless, this space is... More

This place came recommended on my guide book as a beautiful old shopping place but was actually very disappointed that it was just another big modern shopping mall (though it had an indoor amusement park at the top floor). You can't really tell it is an old repurposed building. Not worth the time.

On our hotel’s recommendation, we took a taxi to see this huge 4-story Art Deco shopping center on Corrientes. The stores were more mid-range, but the huge food court had everything you could ask for. At the top level was a children’s game area, arcade, and a Museo de Los Ninos. There was a huge ferris wheel at the top... More

There's something here for virtually every budget. Bring the kids because there is an amusement park of sorts on the top level. The food court has something to suit every taste - there's even a kosher McDonald's. The building itself, dating back to the late 1800's is quite impressive with massive curved ceilings of glass and entire four story walls... More
