  • It is a unique work of its kind, true testimony of the importance given to public hygiene and drinking water by the rulers of the time.

  • Fantastic. A great plave to visit and learn about Water Supply by the time in this city. That museum is amazing and should have been more visited, of course is a hidden treasure of the city.
  • If you love history, this is the place to go. You are taken inside the water distribution palace built for Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. The building is amazing and the guides are the best! I would highly recommend a visit. I just don’t know if there are visits in languages other than Spanish, so either be prepared to struggle or take someone who speaks the language.
