We came here when walking from Plaza de Mayo to Puerto Madero. The outside of the building has very impressive architecture, and the inside is just as good. I can't say I've ever seen a bank like this! Unfortunately, photos are not allowed inside

This is a building of Argentina's National bank. Very impressive architecture. It is located near Casa Rosada.

Designed by architect Alejandro Bustillo, this beautiful bank houses the nation's largest bank. We stopped in to try to open a bank account for our daughter. Given the current economic crisis, this was not possible. Worth a quick peek inside to view the ironic contrast in opulence verses a weak economy. Victoria, the banker that we spoke to, was delightful.

Due to the change in Govt in the past 5 months I'm really finding it difficult to change cash. As advised on Lovely Planet USA$ talks however this is not the case. Banks will not exchange US cash if you dont have an account with them. Money exchange booths are nil at the time of writing, I found one in... More

Constructed in the 1940’s, this huge edifice was once the Central Bank. The huge 164’ diameter dome is the third largest in the world and provides a grand open space with marble floors and ornate wood work. Today, the building is the headquarters to the country’s largest bank. This is not your typical branch bank building.

Situated on the Plaza de Mayo, opposite the Casa Rosada you simply cannot miss this massive building. Very nice in classical style. The impressive Bank of Argentina edifice was previously the theater Colon, before they built the new one on Av.9 July.
