Stop At: Ministerio de Cultura, C1087AAE, Adolfo Alsina 465, CABA, Argentina

At the corner of Alvear Avenue and Rodriguez Peña Street, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta, there is an imposing four-story building that draws attention for its particular physiognomy. This is Casey Palace, the current headquarters of the Ministry of Culture of the Nation. Its red and gray façade, made up of exposed bricks and strips of Paris-like stone and exquisite ornamental details, plus the mansardas in the black slate roofing at the top, make up a visual appeal that causes people passing by not able to resist the temptation to photograph it.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Embajada de Francia, Calle Cerrito 1399 Esquina Arroyo, Buenos Aires C1010ABA Argentina

The house that belonged to Ortiz Basualdo-Zapiola is today the headquarters of the Embassy of France. Built between 1912 and 1918, it is considered one of the buildings that best represents the architecture of French academicism. It keeps a great variety of styles that reflect the artistic value

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Embajada de Brasil, Calle Cerrito 1350, Buenos Aires C1010ABB Argentina

At the beginning of Alvear Avenue, in front of the Embassy of France and the Plaza Carlos Pellegrini, there is the Pereda Palace, a château of the 20th century that reflects like no other the marked influence of French architecture in the Buenosairean physiognomy of the time. But its imposing facade, its lavish staircases and its rooms decorated with majestic ceilings, Carrara marble and incredible works of art, hide a unique history, and the whims of a man that led to the design of the palace being projected and finished by two different architects

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires, Posadas 1086, C1011 CABA, Argentina

The Álzaga Unzué palace speaks of an Argentina of the beginning of the last century, with a society of contrasts between the arrival of poor Europe and the Creole agro-export aristocracy that looked at Europe and dreamed of a new Paris on the banks of the Río de la Plata.

The construction was in charge of the Scottish architect Robert Russell, who spent four years in the work, but managed to combine the English Edwardian style that Felix liked with Elena's taste for the French castles of the Loire. It has the typical structure of a hotel particulier of the Belle Époque: a large mansion designed where a single family with four floors of well-defined functions would live.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Palacio Fernandez Anchorena, Av. Alvear 1637, C1014 AAD, Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Palacio Fernández Anchorena is a luxurious mansion from the beginning of the 20th century and one of the few residences of the Buenos Aires upper class that still survives on Avenida Alvear.

It currently belongs to the Holy See and functions as the headquarters of the Apostolic Nunciature in Buenos Aires.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Palacio Duhau - Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, Av. Alvear 1661, C1014 AAD, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Declared a historical monument in 2002, the Duhau Palace is one of the architectural examples that remain of the Buenos Aires Belle Epoque. With its history that dictates from the beginning of the century, and its changes in the structure, the Duhau Palace is a sample of the passion that previous owners had for architecture.

At the beginning of the 30s, the Duhau brothers acquired the building that belonged to Teodoro de Bari, and they commissioned the architect León Dourge to build the current building. He built it with a French neoclassical style that is still inspiring and unique today.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Residencia Maguire, Avenida Alvear 1693, Buenos Aires C1014AAD Argentina

On the corner of Rodríguez Peña and Alvear streets, stands one of the most enigmatic buildings in the city of Buenos Aires, the Maguire Residence, one of the few surviving works of a corridor of mansions of the upper middle class that were demolished or transformed into hotels.

Since 2002, this lavish villa was declared a National Historic Monument, as were its two adjacent residences, the current Duhau-Park Hyatt Palace and the Apostolic Nunciature, all belonging to a family of French origin: the Duhau.
