Chapter 22 - Gallery of Presidential Busts - Hall of Honor: The main entrance to Casa Rosada is located on the north facade, above Rivadavia Avenue.
The main entrance to Casa Rosada is located on the north facade, on Rivadavia Avenue, where the esplanade is located with the entry of the President of the Nation, ministers and some special guests. There is access to an important lobby, the “Hall of Honor”, also known as the “Gallery of the Presidential Busts”.
On its perimeter, Carrara marble busts, works by national and foreign artists, pay homage to Argentine constitutional presidents. The first to be exhibited were made between 1883 and 1884, commissioned by President Julio Argentino Roca. Currently, the sculptures and their entry into the gallery are carried out in accordance with the provisions of a presidential decree. In May 2016, the presidential busts were relocated in strict chronological order.
On the side walls, there are two reliefs by the Argentine sculptor José Fioravanti, with Art Deco lines, The Exaltation of the Young Motherland and The Heroic Sentiment of the Race.
At the ends of the hall, the stairs France and Italy lead to the main halls and the presidential office on the first floor.
A set of glazed doors located on the wall opposite the main entrance give access to the Patio de las Palmeras.
