The pink house (la casa rosada) is the headquarter of the Nacional Executive Power.
The legend says that during its construction, at the end of the 19th century, many colors were not available for painting. And it ended up being pink because it is the color that formed when mixing lime and cow´s blood: a color widely used at that time.
It works as the seat of the government of our country since approximately 1886. The building is gorgeous and ideal for taking pictures, also recently allows visitors to access the back garden of the Pink House (with flowers, fountains and a new greenhouse).
It is possible to access the interior of the Pink House through a guided tour. They are made only on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays and it is necessary to reserve a place through the website https://visitas.casarosada.gob.ar/. Only allowed with a 15 days previous booking.
