Buenos Aires Domes Tour

The Buenos Aires of the 19th and 20th centuries was very prolific in monumental buildings crowned by domes, but which are the most beautiful? To find out, we'll meet at 9 am next to the pyramid of Plaza de Mayo.

First, we'll take a walk to the Bencich Building to admire its two huge five-story domes from the street, designed in 1927 by French architect Eduardo Le Monnier. From the same intersection, we'll observe the exterior architecture of the First National Bank of Boston, commonly known as Banco de Boston, located on the popular 'corner of the five domes.'

We'll then take our tour of Buenos Aires into the neighborhood of San Telmo, where we'll pass by the Casal de Catalunya, a beautiful neo-Gothic-Modernist building. Next stop? The Otto Wulff Building, whose domes have the typical features of a Central European variant of Art Nouveau called Jugendstil.

After learning about the history of these buildings, we'll go to Avenida de Mayo to look at the façades and domes of Hotel Chile and Palacio Barolo. Nearby is the National Congress of Argentina, in front of which we'll also pause to appreciate the details of its massive 80-meter high dome.

Continuing on to Avenida Rivadavia, we'll check out two magnificent examples of the Art Nouveau style: the Confitería del Molino building and Casa de los Lirios.

Then, at 11 am, we'll conclude the tour next to one of the most beautiful domes in Buenos Aires, the 'No Hay Sueños Imposibles' building ('There Are No Impossible Dreams,' in English). Before finishing the tour, we'll tell you all about this building's curious name!
