If you are in Buenos Aires this summer, read and go !

I have got two different favorite Musems in Buenos Aires, one ist Spanish Art Museum Enrique Larreta in Belgrano Neighbourhood and the other is this one, The “Fernandez Blanco”.
I have started my cultural activities there and it is always for me a fabolous new experience.

Next I will give you some details about the Museum. It has an spiritual atmosphere a superlative cultural agenda and very
Beautiful spanish Gardens. Arts, Nature and Peace in one place.

The Isaac Fernández Blanco Museum offers a thorough overview of South American Cultural environments, whose confluence contributed to the formation of the first Argentine identity.
