Galerias Pacifico: BIG TOURIST TRAP

This might be on of the biggest tourist trap in the world....They claim to offer competitive prices but that was not the case when I started calculating the prices into US dollars....Ask questions, the stores don't sell anything that one who travels a lot hasn't seen before !!!!

What to buy NOTHING !!!!!!!!

Galerías Pacífico Shopping Mall: Shopping on Florida Street

Great shopping mall without the hustlers on Calle Florida bothering you! I would avoid the Patagonian food place (the fish was dry) but go for the one offering Argentinian fare a few doors away from it (the breads and grilled veal were fabulous! So was the service!). You'll find Freddo's there too, for that cup of coffee with a scoop of melt in the mouth ice cream on the side. And you can get home-made alfajores, too!

What to buy Leather, of course! But you can find all kinds of everything at Gallerias Pacifico.

Galerías Pacífico Shopping Mall: Expensive shopping mall

Even if you aren't purchasing anything at any of the shops here, a visit to this mall is definitely well worth a stop. The malls has some excellent designer shops, but I usually like to find stores I can't find back home, so after wandering in and out the stores, we headed downstairs for something to eat.

Galerías Pacífico Shopping Mall: Florida Street Shopping

Calle Florida is a street in Buenos Aires that cars do not drive down, it is all pedestrian with more shops than you can imagine. We're talking about blocks upon blocks of shops, little malls, and of course Galerias Pacifico Shopping Mall, which is full of higher-end stores and brands that are not necessarily unique to Argentina.

If you're looking for gifts, this is the place. There are a ton of trinket stores where you can buy all the typical tourist stuff (shirts, shotglasses, aprons, etc.) and more authentic Argentinian items (Mates, art, etc.). This shopping area also is full of leather stores. You can find leather all over the city, but to me, Calle Florida seemed to be even more saturated.

Some of the stores do take credit cards, but do have a stash of cash for those that do not.

If you're lucky, you might get to see a Tango show right in the middle of street, as I did (see photo).

Happy Shopping!

Galerias Pacifico: Must see shopping mall on Calle Florida

This tip could just as easily be put under Things to Do rather than shopping since the interior is a sight to behold. Even my shopping phobic husband enjoyed the visit here and he didn't even break out in hives!

The building was constructed in 1891 but the current mall only dates back to 1992. It was designed to resemble the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, it features long halls, glass cupolas and several levels of shops. It was short lived as shopping space as it was converted into offices for the Pacifico Railroad (hence the name). It was during this period, in 1945, that the paintings about the history of mankind were placed under the main dome.

To get a good look at the paintings under the dome, go down the short staircase toward the food court. And if you are hungry there are several interesting choices for lunch including several fast food asados (Argentine grills) that can be followed by some ice cream at Freddo's or some chocolates or one of the tempting desserts found at several locations.

Galerías Pacífico: beautifful mall

This tiny mall, located in the "Calle Florida" has some beautiful paintings on the ceiling. I would recomend people that are in the area to stop at least for a cup of coffe to enjoy the art and the arquitecture. They don't have too many shops, so if you are not nearby, don't go there just for the shopping experience... (Unless you are staying in BA for a long time)
