Casa Rosada

Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires

The government house stands on the eastern end of the Plaza. Its present construction dates from 1894 when it was merged with the adjoining Customs and Post Office buildings. You could also see the excavation that have revealed part of the old Customs house. The "patios" of the Casa Rosada are decorated with palm trees and fountains giving it a Mediterranean air.

Casa Rosada's museum is an interesting pot for visitors. Casa Rosada is guarded by soldiers of the Granaderos (a Caballo regiment-mounted grenadiers) whose uniform is the same that was used since San Martin created the regiment in 1813. A small platoon of Granaderos crosses the Plaza everyday at 7 p.m. to lower the flag on the Plaza's flagstaff.
