Located in a quiet corner of Recoleta, the Argentine National Library is the largest library in the country and one of the most important in South America. In a city like Buenos Aires, famous for its belle epoch architecture, the National Library stands out as one of the best examples of contemporary architecture in the country.

The Brutalist structure was the work of architect Clorindo Testa, winner of a design contest staged in the early 1960s. Construction of the library wouldn’t begin until a decade later, and it wasn’t until 1992 that the completed library was inaugurated.

Visitors access the public library through a small, grassy reading garden. Inside, the collection is available to the public. The view from the top floor of the library is worth a look, and there are often special exhibitions on display within the building.

Rollin is a sustainable tourism experience that aims to convey the magic of Argentina, while we travel approximately 10km on electric scooters in which we will visit the most iconic places in the City of Buenos Aires. We want Rollin to be a fresh and fun experience, so we won't tell you everything that's on Wikipedia.

Also, during the middle of our tour, we will taste the typical candy "alfajor" and its famous typical drink, the "mate".
