Located in a quiet corner of Recoleta, the Argentine National Library is the largest library in the country and one of the most important in South America. In a city like Buenos Aires, famous for its belle epoch architecture, the National Library stands out as one of the best examples of contemporary architecture in the country.

The Brutalist structure was the work of architect Clorindo Testa, winner of a design contest staged in the early 1960s. Construction of the library wouldn’t begin until a decade later, and it wasn’t until 1992 that the completed library was inaugurated.

Visitors access the public library through a small, grassy reading garden. Inside, the collection is available to the public. The view from the top floor of the library is worth a look, and there are often special exhibitions on display within the building.

Electric Scooter Tour: North Buenos Aires.

Electric Scooter Tour: North Buenos Aires.

star-5
24
Rollin is designed to provide you a truly different experience. Our goal is to enjoy the amazing feeling of driving a premium electric scooter and get to know the city with guides prepared to explain not only the monument they are visiting, but how it is linked to the most important aspects of Argentina (sports, religion, economy , politics). We offer a more pleasant experience (much more!) than a prewritten and finished script: we understand the particularities of each group and we know you hate a guide who spitt the Wikipedia page on you.
