You can’t truly say you’ve visited Buenos Aires if you haven’t visited a few of its most important and impressive sites. Recoleta Cemetery, the place where the rich and famous have been buried in Argentina for centuries, the Egyptian-style Obelisk in the center of the city, and of course The Teatro Colon built in its striking Eclectic style.
Luckily, the students at Hibra Spanish have all of this on their doorstep. The impressive Teatro Colon is just a few blocks away. You don’t have to be an opera fan to appreciate its architectural solidity and balanced symmetrically. It is considered to be in the top 3 Opera Houses in the world. In 1908 in enjoyed international success, but after a hundred years of use it because clear that renovations were needed. In 2010 these renovations were completed and it stands proud again at the heart of Buenos Aires.
Studying at Hibra Spanish allows you to have access to these incredible surroundings and lets you, quite simply, be able to pop off at a lunch break and go and have a choripan sandwich with your friends in the shadow of these historically and culturally fascinating buildings.
There are often free events at Teatro Colon which are, of course, insanely popular but definitely worth your while going to visit.
