With a sustained revaluation of its cultural and architectural richness, San Telmo ever lasts as a historical neighborhood attracting thounsands of visitors from around the world. Its life, full of bohemia and history, provides the unique identity belonging to the artistic and cultural meeting point in Buenos Aires.
In this exclusive and aristocratic neighborhood born in the early twenties, at the very same place chosen by Juan de Garay for Buenos Aires birthplace, the building of La Manufactura Papelera stands out transmitting both roughness and sensitivity. Its location is today in a most strategic place, being a few blocks away from the national historic center and close to highways which guarantee the best access.
It’s hard to understand why this remarkable ancient building has been abandoned for almost a century. Essential features which have been respectfully restored are conserved intact, making out of it a unique place in this city which was proposed by the state authorities to become part of the urban heritage of Buenos Aires. The tough personality that escapes from conventionalism strongly expresses the splendor of that time with documentary value. The original and top-quality construction shows the architectural pureness of the early 20th century, enhanced by the charming combination of brick alcoves with metallic beams, and ancient forged iron
columns that show the elegance of the past and makes its history available for the new generations.
The exceptionally arranged two floored 1600 square meters, hosting a discrete charm and traditional elegance that evokes the early 20th century glamour and splendor, allows wide versatility. Technology and facilities, are combined with high quality service to guarantee the successful performance of our event.
