Embassy of Argentina

Argentina purchased its embassy in February 1913 from the widow of a Pennsylvania Congressman, who had commissioned the mansion in 1906. Today, the building is a beautiful backdrop for diplomatic and public events. On May 1, you can virtually attend 
the last performance of 2021 DC Tango Festival, a tribute to legendary tango composer Astor Piazzolla. This concert was pre-recorded at the Catholic University of America in DC.
