Altos de Elorriaga | Monserrat

Altos de Elorriaga residence is a construction of the beginning of the XIX siecle

This building dates back from 1820 and it belonged to a high-class family from Buenos Aires, called Elorriaga. This is one of the very few city square corners. It preserves the characteristics of the buildings from those times, from the last years of the “Revolución de Mayo” (May Revolution) in which houses were designed with two patios in the center. The Elorriaga family added a bay window in the upper part of the house in order to see the ships that arrived in town. The façade of Defensa street still has its original colonial style. It is also one of the few buildings that show that this was the place that the elite from Buenos Aires chose to live in, this preference extended towards 1885 approximately, when they started to give it up due to the yellow fever epidemic and moved to the Northern part of Buenos Aires.
