It is very far from the historical distance, so unless you are up for a long hike, you will want to go in a vehicle. It was built, together with a hotel and casino (now a private university), in the early 1900s by an Argentine...More

So my gf and I went here, but entire place is now behind fencing. You can see perimeter, but have no access whatsoever. May have been cool, but limited access prevents this.

Unfortunately this was closed and was fenced around so we could only see from a distance. Lots of little stores around to shop

This bullfight stadium was built in the early 1900's, but was closed almost immediately due to the outlawing of bullfighting. Within a few years it will be completely restored into a convention center, with restaurants and sporting events.

Stumbled upon this when on a bike ride and found it quite interesting along with the rail museum next store. Well worth a look and quick trip from town . Hope they can someday ‘recycle ‘ this into a concert or sports venue .

It is not the same than watching the Colosseo in Rome, but not only for the size. This Plaza de toros from old times is ruined and nobody takes care of it, even though they show you it in the city tour, but only from...More

We had a great driver that took us a little of the beat n track and came across Plaza de Toros. While closed, you can still see how this could have been a gathering points way back when. Very cool piece of history.
