Inaugurated in 1906
The Legislative Power of the Argentine Republic has its place in the Palace of the Congress of the Nation. This imposing building located on the block between Callao, Rivadavia, Riobamba and Hipolito Irigoyen stands out for its bronze dome: originally it was golden in color and the passage of time and the erosion of the elements have rusted it to green. It was inaugurated in 1906, measures 80 meters high and its facade contains several statues of high historical value. The columns, the staircase and the various ornaments that can be seen throughout the exterior of the building give it a Greco-Roman imprint to its design. But do not stay alone with the view of the main entrance on Callao Avenue: walk the entire block and notice the details of the Congress building is more than recommended.
Hint: it is possible to participate in guided tours within the National Congress and tour the Chamber of Deputies and Senators, the Library and the most important internal rooms. You must attend to the entrance of Hipólito Irigoyen on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays at 12 noon or at 4:30 p.m. with an identity document or passport. Unless it is a large group, it is not possible to book the visit in advance.
