Really felt like I was standing there in France just by looking at the Euro styled architecture of this building. Certainly beautiful. Check it out if in the area, there are a lot of other points of interest in this part of BA.

If you are in the neighborhood, stop and admire the architecture, the building is used for government purposes now but it is a lovely example of the style of the times..

We recognised the Parisian flair of Buenos Aires in the San Martin Palace which was inspired in the French architecture of the 18th century. San Martin Palace is today the Ceremonial venue of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
