Recoleta Cultural Centre

Recoleta Cultural Centre (Calle Junin 1930, Buenos Aires) – this is an exhibition and cultural events center located in the upscale Recoleta district of Buenos Aires. Originally, the building was a monastery for the Franciscan Friars of Recoleta, which they used until the 19th century. It’s function then changed numerous times. First as a drawing school founded by General Manuel Belgrano, then as a homeless shelter. The complex then went through a number of changes brought about by first Mayor of Buenos Aires. Today the center is a maze of different rooms which are used to display various types of art. At any given time you can see both national and international exhibits featuring paintings, sculptures, or photography.
