Buenos Aires : Tribunales
Tribunales is the theater district of Buenos Aires. This part of downtown has many theater shows, especially on Avenida Corrientes.
- Teatro Colon, considered one of the top 5 opera houses in the world, it was closed for many years due to remodelations. The theater is now opened to the public, and it's a must to see when in Buenos Aires. You can check the 2010 agenda at .
- Palacio de Justicia, designed by french arquitect Norbert Maillart over 100 years ago, it is where the Supreme Court resides.
- Pasaje Rivarola. Right after seeing the 'Palacio de Justicia', walk 3 blocks along Talcahuano street in the same direction as cars until you reach Tte. Gral Juan Domingo Peron street. At this point, turn right and walk 20 meters. You'll reach Pasaje Rivarola, a beautiful hidden gem in Buenos Aires. It was built in a way that buildings on one side are a 'mirror' of the ones in front of them. You'll also find 'Casa Raab', an antique clock shop, featuring a nice old watch that complements really well with the atmosphere of the street.

Fugazzeta rellena from El Cuartito
- El Cuartito, Talcahuano 937. One of the traditional pizzerias of Buenos Aires, since 1934 El Cuartito maintains most of its original environment and quality in their food. Don't miss the 'fugazzeta rellena con jamon' (fugazzeta with the crust filled with ham), it's delicious. You can go and eat inside, or ask for delivery (they deliver up to 11:30 PM, ask for covered zone). Tel: 4816-1758/4331.
- Guerrin, Av. Corrientes 1368. Similar to El Cuartito, very traditional, local athmosphere, not very expensive. The place is best known for the muzzarella pizza, although you'll find other types as well. You can order a portion along with a glass of moscato.
- Parrilla Peña, Rodriguez Peña 682. This is probably the best place in BA to try an "asado de tira" (ribs), the most traditional piece of an argentine asado. You can also try other different meat cuts, but the "tira de asado" is the distinctive dish. A waiter said the "porcion de tira" is enough for three or more whereas the single tira (una tira), together with some fries or salad was enough for two. Be aware that if you order a "parrillada", the cuts for the "asado" are completely different, they don't even taste the same.
