Banco Hipotecario, Mendoza

Banco Hipotecario, Mendoza

Banco Hipotecario is one of the most beautiful buildings in Mendoza. It was built in 1924 by the Chilean architect Ramos Correas. The building was designed in neoclassical style, creating an unusual structure for the corner-building. It is “pushed” away from the street, giving space for the atrium entrance opposite the Plaza San Martin. The entrance is crowned with the nation's crest-shields and a small round clock. The building's wings are welcoming visitors with gracious iron balconies and beautiful ornamentation. Today, Banco Hipotecario houses the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
