This building, a mixture of many styles, is the monumental symbol of the cultural life of Buenos Aires. I think the field is built where it occupies about 8 square kilometers, so imagine his majesty. The set is beautiful, and as you approach along the Avenida 9 de Julio you can appreciate the magnificent view. It is currently being restored, but while I was there, people could visit and there were serveral daily musical performances for the summer. We visited in the morning, with a guided tour. I remember the stunning white marble hall, and the incredible stained glass dome, the golden hall and the hall of busts.
