La Posada de 1820

A corner that seems immune to the passing of time.

On the corner of the streets Tucumán and San Martín, this building with its intense red colour has survived the passing of time, preserving its beautifully crafted ironwork and balconies. Inaugurated in 1820, it is reportedly the place where Argentina's founding fathers often gathered in the evening after long days at the nearby Cabildo colonial town hall during the early days of Argentina's independence.

Previously offering lodging, the building now houses a restaurant serving Argentine cuisine, particularly beef and Patagonian lamb, and a wine list of 150 vintages. The grilled fish and homemade ravioli are also good options.
