We came here when walking from Plaza de Mayo to Puerto Madero. The outside of the building has very impressive architecture, and the inside is just as good. I can't say I've ever seen a bank like this! Unfortunately, photos are not allowed inside

This is a building of Argentina's National bank. Very impressive architecture. It is located near Casa Rosada.

Designed by architect Alejandro Bustillo, this beautiful bank houses the nation's largest bank. We stopped in to try to open a bank account for our daughter. Given the current economic crisis, this was not possible. Worth a quick peek inside to view the ironic contrast in opulence verses a weak economy. Victoria, the banker that we spoke to, was delightful.

Constructed in the 1940’s, this huge edifice was once the Central Bank. The huge 164’ diameter dome is the third largest in the world and provides a grand open space with marble floors and ornate wood work. Today, the building is the headquarters to the country’s largest bank. This is not your typical branch bank building.

Situated on the Plaza de Mayo, opposite the Casa Rosada you simply cannot miss this massive building. Very nice in classical style. The impressive Bank of Argentina edifice was previously the theater Colon, before they built the new one on Av.9 July.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
