Opposite direction from the Obelisk, the Avenida 9 de Julio ends up on that really nice facade. In the background, this is the French Embassy, at Cerrito 1399, right in the Recoleta neighbor. More info: French Embassy This is one of the most beautiful embassy building in Buenos Aires. If I can remember well, Italy's embassy shows a really nice architecture too. En direction opposee de l'Obelisque, l'avenue 9 de Julio se termine sur cette tres jolie facade. En fond d'image, se trouve l'Ambasse de France, au numero 1399 de la rue Cerrito, en plein quartier Recoleta. Pour plus d'infos: French Embassy. C'est l'une des plus belles ambasses de Buenos Aires. Si je me souviens bien, l'ambasse d'Italie a, elle aussi, une tres belle architecture.

Did you visit it? I heard the town wanted to knock it down when rebuilding the new avenue longer and they finally decided to leave it there, in the middle. kind of them!
