Centro Cultural Pasaje Dardo Rocha

Centro Cultural Pasaje Dardo Rocha Review

The equestrian statue of South American liberator José de San Martín stands in the center of Plaza San Martín. On the square's north side is the black slate roof of the French neoclassical Legislatura (provincial legislature) building. Nearby is the Pasaje Dardo Rocha Cultural Center, housed in a massive Parisian-style building. Once the city's main train station, it's now home to a small art-house movie theater, temporary exhibition and performance spaces, and several small art museums including the Museum of Contemporary Latin American Art (MACLA), and a small collection of artworks by Argentinean masters. It occasionally hosts small-scale international exhibitions: Dalí and Goya shows are two examples.
