The building is impressive. Very good potential but the place is almost empty. Im not sure what they are showing now.

We weren't able to come in when we visited on a Wednesday afternoon but standing in front of it was impressive enough. You won't miss it when heading to Puerto Madero from Plaza de Mayo.

What an amazing space of modern/contemporary pieces! 4 floors plus the 'ship' to venture to and all free...wow! So worth a visit for all the family with great concepts of visual and sound. Highly recommend, gracias!

It used to be the main Post Office, now converted into a cultural place. Free shows are run regularly.

The outside facade of this building is an exquisite piece of architecture but in the inside is most boring and inefficient . Most of the halls are empty and the corridors remind an hospital .Sometimes they have performances but in general this building is wasted .

Brian ENO is a musician, and an Artist, a Big One. The Former Correo Central, actual CCK, is an amaizing place for culture, architecture and multi exibitions place. You can't miss visit it at Buenos Aires

Frankly, this is not a very good touristy spot. The modern concert hall built in the 19th century building is strange, the ping-pong tables in the basement as well.

CCK is a hub of cultural activities, including art exhibitions and concerts in two exceptional concert halls. It is built inside the magnificent old central post office building. There is always something interesting going on. Events seem to be reasonably priced. Well worth a visit, and a concert.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
