Palacio Paz and Círculo Militar

A former aristocrat’s residence, this palace offers beautiful views

The front entrance, by Tara for TKGO.

This palace has a long backstory of wealthy families and bankruptcies, but in the end it’s a good dose of Argentine history and some stunning chandeliers. There’s a garden in the back and a whole theater room, along with some secret entrances to dining rooms for the waiters and hired help.

Attached to it is the Museo de Armas de la Nación, which is really cool to peer into but totally unnecessary to pay the entry fee. Sign up for tours in Spanish, if you can. They’re more frequent and people just say more interesting tidbits when they’re comfortable in their own language.
