Of course the city of Buenos Aires still resonates to the name of Eva Peron, the former first lady of Argentina as the wife of Juan Perón in 1945. Housed in a 20th century mansion built for the Carabassa family by the architect Estanislao Pirovano, the Evita Museum combines the Italian Renaissance and Plateresque styles.
It was in this building in 1948 that Eva Perón inaugurated the el Hogar de Tránsito (temporary shelter) designed for women and children without resources.
Nowadays, the building has been converted into the Evita Museum where the personality of Argentina's most famous woman is unveiled for the public.
