Florida street

Florida is a pedestrian street where you will find a lot of nice shops. In a few blocks you can find anything you need.There are full of shops and also you can see artists dancing tango, playing music, among other things. On that same street you have Galerias Pacifico (the building on the right in the picture), it's a shopping mall where you can find a cultural center called Borges. The Galerias Pacifico has to be the most architecturally beautiful shopping center in Argentina. It was built in the late 1800s and inspired on the Bon Marche in Paris. Florida street is located in the city's center. Florida c'est une rue pietonne ou l'on peut trouver tout plein de boutiques sympas. Remplie de boutiques et de touristes, on peut y voir des demonstrations de tango, des gens joueant de la musique, entre autre chose. Galerias Pacifico (l'edifice a droite sur la photo) se trouve sur Florida. C'est une galerie-boutiques, et c'est la que vous trouverez le centre culturel Borges. L'architecture de la Galerias Pacifico en fait un centre commercial des plus magnifiques d'Argentine. La galerie a ete construite fin 1800 d'apres le Bon Marche a Paris. La rue Florida se trouve au centre ville de Buenos Aires.

The Victorian era buildings certainly help give some character to a city. Like buenos Aires Melbourne has a number of these - although they were mainly constructed as public building Post Office Treaury Parliament House, Railway Offices and the like - Now many of them are being turned into shopping Malls and hotels but I don't think there is a large purpose built shopping stor in the Victorian style

That's true: it looks very much like "le Bon Marché". Amazing!
