Walking around Buenos Aires, i found very interesting places, some of them free and others with very economic prices. In “Recoleta”, a posh neighborhood, you can find the National Museum of Fine Arts, on Libertador Avenue. This is a very interesting place to go, and it is also free.
At this museum, we can find works from very important south American painters and from others very important too from around the globe, as Gaugin, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh and others.
Some blocks away from this museum, we can find the Cultural Recoleta Center, on Junin Street. The entrance to this place is also free! Some steps away from here, there is a beautiful and ancient church, constructed by the Jesuits on 1732. Named “Nuestra Señora del Pilar”, it offers a visit to all of it for just one argentine peso.
Something that you should definitely do is to have a coffee at “La Biela”. This place is a traditional coffee store from Recoleta, where several languages can be hear, as it is a real magnet for tourists. Apart from this, you have the chance to get to know some of the zone’s most interesting persons, who always wonder around this place.
Another nice walk for tourists who call themselves lovers of the literature, is around Corrientes Avenue, where we can find lots of libraries which sell their books for almost a dollar. You can find books of all kind; classics, art, novels, poetry, guides, and more. It’s just all about having time and patience.
Other cheap option is the General San Martin Theatre, where we can find an important photograph exposition which is renewed week after week. At this same theatre, and just for around two dollars, you can get to see a very good play.
On the other hand, if you prefer the cinema, you can go to the Leopoldo Lugones Cinema, and enjoy any movie for a cheaper price than the theatre.
