Pizzurno Palace in Balvanera, Buenos Aires, Argentina

During your walking tour, you visited a couple landmarks in Balvanera around Plaza del Congreso. There are only a few other places of interest to tourists in this dense, residential neighborhood. Among them are several theaters. Fans of Second French Empire architecture will admire Pizzurno Palace. The 15 acre lot beneath this building was gifted by heiress Petronila Rodríguez de Rojas in 1882. Her estate also provided the funding for a girl’s school and senior living facility. When finished in 1888, it was called Pizzurno Palace. Since then, this elegant structure has housed several government agencies. The current occupant is the Argentine Ministry of Education.
