An office building with a beautiful main floor crowded with shops that spoil the view of the building. Chose not to squeeze up the spiral staircase to the viewing platform.

One of the best art nouveau buildings in the world. It is an office building, but the main level has some great shops and a small cafe. Look up at the glass in the domes at each end of the first level.

Completely unique view on Buenos Aires, it's so cool to see it from up high. I wasn't expecting much but I ended up loving it, totally worth it.

This is an oasis in the middle of the craziness of Florida street that is hot, chaotic and overcrowded by locals and tourists. When entering the Galeria you enter in a different time zone. This beautiful space was created for rich people to mingle. It...More

Elegant old building. The cupola view is decent as you can see from everyone's photos. Price now 50 pesos and as the space is tiny and the staircase is tiny, there are visiting time slots. See posted photo of information sign.

This gallery joins 4 streets and has many entry points, the shops are nice and less expensive than those on adjacent Calle Florida. The 2 cupolas and the decorations in brass above the elevators are lovely. The highlight is the ride up to the 14th...More

We happened upon this amazing spot. We originally walked past the entrance. When you go in there are stores but that is not the draw to the place. It is the view from the 16th floor. Take the elevator to the 14th floor then you...More

I tried twice to visit the top of Galeria Guemes and came away disappointed both times because it was closed. The Sunday I should have expected, but going back on a Tuesday I was dismayed to see it was closed from noon to three. Loved...More

This rather small Galleria gets missed with the subtle entry off Florida. They would do well to not crowd it with shopping in the center but the architectures is awesome. Not to be missed (south part off Florida)

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
