Centro Cultural Borges is one of the most interesting cultural options to visit in Buenos Aires. Especially if you are talking a walk across Florida in downtown. Located inside Galerías Pacífico, a traditional shopping mall from the nineteenth century.
Centro Cultural Borges champions culture and was created by Fundación para las Artes, a nonprofit with the public interest in its mission. Launched in 1995 with 107,000 square feet of space within Galerías Pacífico, a building that was named a historical national landmark and became a porteño emblem.
Centro Cultural Borges aims to promote and stimulate all art forms.
