  • The architecture houses so much intricate and noble detail. The building is an awesome work of art. This might very well be the nicest building in Buenos Aires.

  • Absolutely astonishing building with a beautiful Terracotta finish and lots of symbolic images. Quite a breathtaking view... on the outside. As the name suggests, it's a Water "Museum", as in it was actually just a huge water tank used to supply water to Porteños on the the Late 1890's and early 1900's. In the outside is quite grim and old, the metal is all corroded and it feels it could collapse at any time. Just stick with the outside part, and take photos around the whole block
  • Gorgeous outside and fascinating inside. Most beautiful building in Buenos Aires. Now, in Nov. 2021 you must ask for a time to visit by going to the website. They will send you an email with available times. Once you arrive you are part of a small group. Tours are in Spanish and are free.
