“No, we didn't cross the city in the underground tunnels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

It's nice to learn about the history but we didn't even walk any part of the "tunnel" because they're only renovated to be shown and for stories to be told, so don't have high hopes! The cafe would be a nice place to lose yourself in the hustle of the day.

“Where's the rest?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Is this all it rests from old Buenos Aires? Being just half a city block it could be easily kept in a better way.

If you know a little about spanish you must go. Take the guide visit and you will know more about Buenos Aires and Spain History as well about what people were doing around 1850 in Soth America, I loved it.

“The old Jesuit holdout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

In the old quarter of BA, next to the Cabildo, this was the original Jesuit HQ in the Colonial Buenos Aires. BA's University was housed here when it was chartered in the early 1820s.
