Description
Sitting proudly at the heart of Plaza de Mayo in the area of Buenos Aires known as 'Centro' is La Casa Rosada. Translated to English, La Casa Rosada literally means 'The Pink House'. While the ... Read more
translation does not lie about the color of the building, this 'casa' is a little more than just a house. This Italian style structure, known to locals as 'Casa de Gobierno' or Government House, is where each President of Argentina has worked since it was built in the late 1800s.

A nice 8 block walk from the apartment, located in Plaza de Mayo. The government allowed Madonna to film a recreation of Eva Peron's speech from one of it's balconies in the film, Evita.

Eastern side of Plaza de Mayo is the Casa Rosada (Pink House). It's an executive mansion and the office of the president.

This is the heart of Buenos Aires. Avenida Mayo leads to Tortoni and more adventures. Don't miss the Museo Del Bicentenario. It is underground, so it is easy to miss. www.museobicentenario.gov.ar

Luxury and design and history and glamour and Evita and where are my heart-eyed emoji?? It's not everyday you have the opportunity to tour the seat of a foreign government -- just plan accordingly; they only do public tours on the weekend, and there's only one English tour per weekend. The Banco Nacional is right across the street, Cafe Tortoni is on the other side of Plaza de Mayo, San Telmo is a few blocks away, and Puerto Madero is toward the water. Well, that to me sounds like an entire day in your itinerary...all within walking distance.

Interesting building that is home to several executive offices. It is famous for its balcony overlooking the Plaza de Mayo where Peron and Evita gave rousing speashes to large masses. The Casa Rosada also has a museum dedicated to Argentine presidents with a bunch of memorabilia.

La Casa Rosada, Argentina's presidential palace, is perhaps most famous as the site where Eva Peron gave her speeches to her legions of followers (it was also immortalized in the "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" scene in the film "Evita."

The presidential palace. It is possible to go inside, but unfortunately I didn't have the time. Very atmospheric though, and if you squint you can almost see Eva Peron on the balcony

Argentina's presidential palace. Literally "The Pink House". Worth a walk by and the surrounding area is full of history and charm.

My favorite building in Buenos Aires. Placed at the end of the Plaza De Mayo. Very classical architecture but adorn with some modern detail. It definitely stood out in the plaza especially due to its pink color. At night it is lit up brilliantly. An absolute must see.

Local from Ciudad De Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Casa Rosada or Casa de Gobierno is the main office of the Argentinian's president, located right in front of the Plaza de Mayo. During the weekends this place its open to visitors. I strongly suggest to pass by this place at night, because this building gets illuminated in a beautiful way with strong pink lights.

A major landmark in Buenos Aires. The executive branch of the government is housed in this building. The structure is lit up in red/pink at night. If you are familiar with the movie Evita, this building is where Evita stood on the balcony and rallied the people.

Pretty place, very touristic point in Buenos Aires. It is nice to walk on the streets in the neighborhood of Casa Rosada, there are a lot of comercial stores. It is very near Puerto Madero, you can walk form Casa Rosada, cross the bridge and go to Puerto parks. A nice walk!

The Casa Rosada is, if memory serves, their head of state's residence. As the name suggests, it's a roughly pinkish building, and has that stately look about it. The best part of the casa is more the area - there is quite a bit to see and do. As for the building itself, sure, take a picture of two, but beyond that, it's more of a forgettable landmark than anything else.

The Casa Rosada is Argentina's presidential office, which has a small museum devoted to the previous presidents. It's between the Parque Colón and the Plaza de Mayo. Since it's the office of the president, political groups hold protests here.

This an interesting place, we went when there was a strike going on, the tourguide was upset about it.
