Gaze up at the Paz Palace(Palacio Paz), and it’s easy to see why many consider Buenos Aires to be the Paris of South America. The mansion, designed to be the private residence of La Prensa founder Jose C. Paz, was built between 1902 and 1914 by French architect Louis Sortais. Paz died in Monaco in 1912, but while he never got to live in the palace he’d commissioned, his wife and children did.

When it was built, Paz Palace(Palacio Paz) was the largest private residence in Buenos Aires, complete with 140 rooms and 40 bathrooms spread throughout its 129,000 square feet (12,000 square meters). All the construction materials and furnishings — marble, chandeliers, wood tiles and gold gilding — were imported from France.

Today, the palace serves as the headquarters of the Military Officers’ Association social club and also houses the National Museum of Armaments. English-language tours are offered weekly, allowing visitors to get a sense of just how opulent the palace was, as it still contains much of its original furnishings and fixtures.

Palaces of Buenos Aires

Palaces of Buenos Aires

The tour runs through the neighborhoods of Retiro and Recoleta, two unmissable areas of the city of Buenos Aires, walking through the wide streets full of trees, quiet and safe. In this tour we take a trip back in time to the beginning of the 20th century trying to imagine how wealthy families lived between their palaces in the city and their trips to Europe. The tour is fun and agile, in a light walk of a little more than 1 km. We try to have fun and a good time, we not only tell part of the history of our country but we also tell funny and not so well-known stories of the royal families of that time. As a guide friend I like to share everything I know about the city where I live, recommendations on where to eat, what to do, what to visit, from the perspective and knowledge of a local. I like to share my life with the people who visit us and why not establish a friendship. I am accompanied by an experience of almost 10 years doing what I love.

Private Walking Tour of Recoleta & Retiro in Buenos Aires

Private Walking Tour of Recoleta & Retiro in Buenos Aires

Travel back in time to the first decades of the 20th century, when the State and the aristocracy dreamt of turning Buenos Aires city in the Paris of Latin America and showed their wealth by constructing lavish and sumptuous palaces and buildings. Visit the legendary Recoleta Cemetery, that is characterized for its important tombs and mausoleums, in which lie the most important figures of Argentine history, literature and politics. Be surprised on visiting Eva Peron’s tomb, whose presence here is paradoxical as she was hated by the upper class and loved by all the workers.
