Centro Cultural Recoleta

Cultural Center
Built in 1716 as a Franciscan cloister, this complex served as a hospital during the English invasions, and was later converted into a school. In 1928, the building was partially destroyed to make way for the expansion of the adjacent Recoleta Cemetery. Years later, it was again reborn as an asylum for over 800 homeless and elderly people, which it served as until 1978, when it was officially rezoned for use as a cultural center. The walls were fortified and painted in ochre and reddish tones, and the building was given new life. It now bustles with cultural and educational activities, and even boasts offices of the United Nations. There is a small cafe, a gift shop and bookstore on the premises.

The ‘Ice Palace' of French influence, was constructed for the sole purpose of practicing ice skating. With time, this place started welcoming tango dancers, an idea that did not go down well with the elite crowd. When Baron de Marhi organized a celebration in his gallery to approve the dance, this form of art gained acceptance in the high Buenosarian society. Thus it started growing in prestige, until in 1932 it became a museum, and hall for exhibitions of matchless reputation, with the presence of artists such as Perez Célis. Its dance floor is surrounded by theater boxes, and a confectionery and bar!
