Catedral de San Isidro

Reviewed By Dan L - Bunbury, Australia

Stopped here prior to our Tigre Delta tour. Built on the site of a 1706 chapel opened by the city's founder, Captain Domingo de Acassuso, the Cathedral was designed by French architects Dunant and Paquin, and inaugurated on July 14, 1898. It is constructed in neogothic style and it stands 68 m tall. Although bathed in brilliant Sunshine externally, the interior was dark and gloomy and not conducive to photography without flash. Interesting Cathedral but not a "must see".

Quinta Los Ombues

Reviewed By nancy s - Denville, New Jersey

We booked a tour on the Sturla Boat Ride of the Tigre Delta. We were picked up at our hotel with a tourist bus, comfortable. Before reaching the pier we stopped at Quinta Los Ombues, an old colonial house. The home furnishings were from the colonial era. The Gardens were beautiful with a view of the River Plate. The guide was informative explaining life in colonial times. Worth a visit on the way to Tigre. No entrance fee.

Villa Ocampo

Reviewed By Jesusmiguel58 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

This is the place where Victoria Ocampo spent much of her life and hosted a good number of historic leaders and cultural personalities from all around the world, from Rabindranath Tagore to Federico García Lorca, Graham Greene, Albert Camus or Jorge Luis Borges, the list is endless. The house itself is elegant but not extravagant, and the Gardens, the library and the book collections makes this an unmissable visit if you are interested in getting to know more about this uncompromising, unique woman. The house was given to the UNESCO by the explicit wish of Mrs.Ocampo who wanted this place to be kept aside of all political turbulence in Argentina.

Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Lucy Mattos

Reviewed By Mary T - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Lucy Mattos' art is displayed to great advantage in her exclusive museum. The larger sculptures made in resin are illuminated from within, providing for a fantasy-land atmosphere. My favorite piece is "Depredadores por Dinero y Poder" (Predators for Money and Power), quite a commentary on part of modern Argentine society. Also high on the list were the Tree Woman and

Museo del Juguete

Reviewed By agustinithurralde - Buenos Aires

Un museo chico, pero interesante. A un par de cuadras de marquez y panamericana. Depende de la municiplidad de San Isidro. Se visita en un rato, y es muy agradable. Tiene buen estacionamiento. La entrada es barata y simbólica, $ 15 por persona y guardarropa.
Tiene en exhibición juguetes del siglo xx, como baleros, sogas, autitos, mecanos, muchas muñecas. Separados mas o menos por épocas, con una sala para juegos de barrio tipo bolitas o patinetas. Enfocan a juguetes de fabricación nacional. Es muy interactivo, tiene mesas para sentarse con los chicos a jugar con legos, maderitas, juegos de mesa. Tiene buena cantidad de asistentes muy serviciales, y hay talleres los fines de semana bien armados para chicos de 5 años para arriba. Mis hijas armaron un teatro de sombras, con luces, muñecos (incluso la lamparita a pila).
Cumple mas de lo que aparenta. Vale la pena conocerlo como paseo de fin de semana.

Atelier Casapuente, Sbm Arts

If there is one place you dreamed, thats Atelier Casapuente!!!. Started as the work place for the artist Sebastian Boado Montero,today is a truely living art experience. Many things were made of left overs, as things that were nothing and, threw the intense and diverse life of the artist, became a emotional shot. A gigant turtle welcomes you to observe... Home made food and live Concerts.!

The place is nice and quiet. Decoration is very cool. The place is completely different to any bar you might know. Although the staff can me much more friendly and dedicated to their job, I fully recommend it!

Minka-Museo de Arte Moderno La Casa de Japon

Reviewed By SigourneyWeber - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Se debe hacer una cita previa para poder visitarla e informar la cantidad de gente a concurrir. Es una construcción hecha con un método modular y su medida se llama Ken. Es muy particular, tiene una buena cantidad de esculturas y objetos de Arte Japonés Tradicional y Moderno. El jardín es bellísimo diseñado bajo los conceptos de la arquitectura Japonesa. Es muy interesante conocer como fue concebido este proyecto, como se realizó el lugar.
