Argentina’s National Bank Building

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

This building is considered historical heritage. It was designed by architect Alejandro Bustillo. It occupies an entire city block with 100,000 square meters and was inaugurated in 1944, although in that year only the first stage of construction of the National Bank was finished, because it was indeed completed until 1955.

The National Bank is one of the most imposing and pretentious works of Argentina architecture, due to both its volume and various elements of its design  among which stands out especially its gigantic dome 50 meters in diameter (for me, you can’t notice from outside a dome, because it seems only a square roof), judged by Bustillo as probably the largest in South America.

Saint Servatius church is located in the city center of Valladolid, at the south side of the main square. It was originally built in 1545, partially demolished in 1705 (due to an event called “the crime of the mayors”) and rebuilt in 1706.

In front of it, a carriage to travel around downtown.

I gaze through the window

a sky crying profusely over earth

which makes me remember fondly

how we hold hands in the dark

on a previous rainy day

at the day of our date
