At one end of the Plaza de Mayo is the Casa Rosada, current seat of the national government. At the other end of the Plaza is the Cabildo of Buenos Aires, the old seat of the government of our country. Although in that place there has been a Cabildo from the foundation of the City of Buenos Aires by Juan de Garay, in 1580, the current building began to be built in 1725. The same, until today suffered numerous modifications: the most important they were the cuts of the lateral arcs and the remodeling of the central tower. The Cabildo has witnessed numerous important historical events, such as the May Revolution. Undoubtedly, this building is one of the most important patrimonies in the history of Argentina.

Hint: it is possible to visit the Cabildo and the opening hours and guided tours are on this website: https://cabildonacional.cultura.gob.ar/info/visita/. But, beyond that information, we must know that the Cabildo has a beautiful backyard where on Thursdays and Fridays a craft fair is installed.
