The city has a hotel and gastronomic infrastructure to receive tourists who wish to base there during their stay in the estuaries and bathed in the region. But, in addition, it offers attractions that are worth knowing, such as the Mitre park, where the House of Culture works, a construction dating from 1890 within which several museums work: the Municipal Historical Museum, the Colonial, the Bellas Arts and the Mesopotamian Regional, in addition to the Municipal School of Art and Languages ​​and the Municipal Library.
Another of the historic buildings is the Municipal Palace, whose façade refers to the House of Tucumán, while its first floor makes it to the Cabildo de Buenos Aires. However, the jewel of the city is the Cervantes Theater, known as “Petit Scala of Milan” because it looks like a small replica of the prestigious Italian theater.
