Another tourist stop during our Buenos Aires visit. Ironically, we also visited a Rose House in Sao Paulo - that one named for the Rose Garden in front of it. But this one is the house of government for Buenos Aires - their white house, if you will. The house is named for the color of the stone it's constructed of.
The president of Argentina works here, but doesn't live here. She travels in every day from her home by helicopter and is then transported in secret car (secret tunnel?) to the Rose House for work. Pretty nice commute, I'll bet. And yes, if you're an Evita fan, this is where she made her famous speech, or as we joked, where Madonna sang Don't Cry for me Argentina - whichever you prefer.
We went on a guided tour of the house, which are run every Sunday and are free to the public.
