Galería Güemes

Galería Güemes

With its slender lighthouse and exquisite ironwork cupolas, this art nouveau landmark dates from 1915. Italian architect Francisco Gianotti modeled it on the Parisian shopping arcades built in the late 19th century. Thanks to extensive restoration, visitors can now climb to a viewing station 262 feet up. Little Prince author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry lived in an apartment here from 1929–1931.
