Antigua Casa Beben (Old Beben House)

Antigua Casa Beben (Old Beben House) Review

The Antigua Casa Beben is one of Ushuaia's original houses, and long served as the city's social center. Built between 1911 and 1913 by Fortunato Beben, it's said he ordered the house through a Swiss catalog. In the 1980s the Beben family donated the house to the city to avoid demolition. It was moved to its current location along the coast and restored, and is now a cultural center with art exhibits.
