The neoclassical Palacio del Congreso de la Nación Argentina (1906) in Buenos Aires is the seat of the country's Senate and Chamber of Deputies.

Mira que quiero leer,

mas tan alta vida tengo

que ciego aquí me mantengo

y ni con gafas lo he de ver.

Mi vida entre tanto lustre

no permite que me ilustre,

que con venir al Congreso

ocupo mi vida entera,

además de que muy bien.

¡Cuánto amor yo profeso

por la vida placentera!

¡Dime, qué hiciste, Miguel,

que en escribiendo El Quijote

aquí todos huyen de él!

Y para risa mundana

a las puertas del Congreso

visten con gafas al rey,

para que lea lo que ellos

no son capaces de ver.

  

Léon Fiódorovich Minkus - Don Quixote (Ballet Bolshoi con Natalia Osipova e Ivan Vasiliev).

 

Nota:

A nuestros dos leones

les han colocado "quevedos"

para literaria conmemoración.

Pobre Don Miguel

que inventando El Quijote

para enseñar a "leer",

llegan aquí los Señores

y les colocan las gafas

a estos dos pobres leones,

que ellos de tanto que hacen

les sobra gafas y ver.

Argentina's constitution was inspired by the US model; and likewise, the Palacio del Congreso resembles Washington's bicameral legislature, and was completed in 1906.

The gate features the coats of arms of Argentina's provinces.

when i first went to buenos aires i spent about a week there, although i didn't get to see a great deal as i was ill at the time. i then popped back to england for my sister's wedding while my mate stayed in the city. upon my return he was keen to move on, having spent over a week longer in the capital than me. there were still things that i wanted to see, but it seemed selfish to force him to stay even longer so we packed up and started travelling again. a month or so later we parted ways in chile and i had the choice of continuing my route by heading north, or switching back on myself to visit some other places in argentina which i had missed the first time around. i chose the latter option and ended up in buenos aires for a third time. it was a decision which i have absolutely no regrets about, and having visited all of the capitals in south america (apart from brazil and french guiana) it remains my favourite. i took this on my final visit to the city, from the top of palacio baralo. i already posted a version of this 3 years ago as part of a golden panorama, but i much prefer this more traditional interpretation.

 

here's the original

Beautiful fountain in the plaza in front of the Congress. Unfortunately the fountain was not operating while I visited.

The Monumento de los dos Congresos in the Plaza des los Dos Congresos was designed by the Belgian architect Eugène D'Huicque (1877–1955) and the bronze statues are the work of the Belgian artist Jules Lagae(1862–1931). It was created in Brussels, finished in 1909, and inaugurated in Buenos Aires on July 9, 1914.

 

The monument celebrates the centenary of the 1816 declaration of independence. The central figure represents the Republic on the march, with snake faces and an allegory of abundance at its feet. The two lateral figures represent the assembly of 1813 and the congress of 1816. There are also other representations of national fauna, notably of horses and condors.

Congreso de la Nación Argentina

 

Designed by the Italian architect Vittorio Meano and completed by Argentine architect Julio Dormal, the building was under construction between 1898 and 1906. Inaugurated that year, its aesthetic details were not completed until 1946. The quadriga atop the entrance is the work of sculptor Victor de Pol; local sculptor Lola Mora graced the interior halls and exterior alike with numerous allegorical bronzes.
