Originally built as a disguise for a water tower meant to provide clean drinking water to the people after the 1877 outbreak of yellow fever, the stunning Palacio de Aguas Corrientes now works as Aguas Argentinas (the local water company) headquarters and also as a museum well worth visiting.

Friday

Weather forecasts predict rain for Friday so it’s a good day to visit museums. An interesting alternative is the Museo Penitenciario (the penitentiary museum) set in a building that dates back to 1732.  The display traces the history of the federal prison activity and shows objects, and archives.

In the evening head to Boris Club de Jazz for some live rock-pop-jazz by Sergio Pangaro y Baccarat or, for a more classical outing, buy tickets for the Buenos Aires Ballet Gala, which will be bringing ballet companies from all over the world to the stage of the Teatro Coliseo.  Tickets here.
