Fransisco Seeber and Emilio Bunge created the Bon Marché Argentino in the late nineteenth century to be just like the Bon Marché in Paris. Thus, a building with imposing architecture was born, criss-crossed with aisles, glass vaults and a central dome adorned with murals.
The architects Jorge Azlan and Héctor Ezcurra remodelled the building in 1945 and separated the shopping area from the offices. In 1985, the building was declared a National Historic Monument. In 1992, the Bon Marché Argentino came under the control of Galerias Pacifico S.A and was transformed into the most elegant and cosmopolitan shopping centre in Buenos Aires. The 150 shops in the huge shopping centre are just next door to the Borges Cultural Centre, if you feel like some culture after a shopping spree!
