Buenos Aires points of interest: Palacio Diaz

Buenos Aires tourism, the Palacio Diaz

The massive Palacio Paz bordering Plaza San Martin was certainly the most extravagant attempt to bring the feeling of Paris to the Argentine capital. Most visitors admire the enormous facade from the front, the plaza offering a prime perspective, or by taking a tour of the interior.

But you also should take a few moments and wander around the side of the building, down Maipu street. Walk past the Military Museum tucked into the corner of Palacio Paz and go to the corner of Maipu and Marcelo T. Alvear.
