Definitely worth a visit during your stay in BA! Instead of taking the guided tours, you can buy a ticket to a concert and get to hear the impeccable acoustics of the hall. Very nicely designed inside

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
