It is a symbol of inclusive policies of the best national and popular government Argentine has ever had. I have seen many concerts and theatre plays, thematic exhibitions like Piazolla´s or Evita´s. The architecture is outstanding and the refurbishment is excellent

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
