The City of Buenos Aires has its classic places and others that are not so much. Each neighborhood keeps its treasures: today we tell you about some.

The chalet of the 9th of July

If you're going to stroll through the   Obelisk  , look up: there is a  chalet built on the roof of a building very close to the porteño emblem par excellence. Turns out Rafael Diaz dreamed of having a little chalet in heaven. Owner of a 9-story furniture store in the heart of Buenos Aires, decided to build this house on the roof of the building to have lunch and nap before resuming work.

 Where? Av. 9 de Julio and Av. Sarmiento. 

The Otto Wulff Building

In the district of  Monserrat , the  Otto Wulff building is definitely worth a visit. It was built in 1914 and is  Jugendstil  (modernist) style. On the ground floor there is a café that follows the style of the building, ideal to get to know it.

 Where? Av. Belgrano and Peru. 

The Casal of Catalonia

In 1886 a part of the Catalan community that lived in Buenos Aires created the  Catalan center . The Spanish Consulate and the Argentinian Hispanic Chamber of Commerce operated there for a time, but today it houses a library, the Gaudi exhibition hall and a theater with 600 locations. In 2014 it was declared a  National Historic Monument . On the ground floor there is a restaurant where you can enjoy Spanish and Catalan cuisine.

 Where?   Chacabuco 863. 

The Russian Orthodox Church

Hidden in the neighborhood of   San Telmo   is this gem. It has 5 celestial domes that crown the first Orthodox Church in Latin America. You can visit it.

 Where? Brazil 315. 

La Colorada in Palermo

If you are visiting the  Botanical Garden , take the opportunity to divert a bit and get to know this building. It was built in 1911 by Regis Pigeon, architect and engineer, in a neoclassical English style very strange to our  City . Its characteristic bricks were imported from England.

 Where? Hair 3791.
