Take a tour of Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires, Argentina - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The office of the president of the United States is known for its whitewashed exterior, much as Argentina’s is known for its rosy walls. The Casa Rosada, meaning Pink House, in Buenos Aires, is the beautiful presidential palace of this country. Designed in the Italian style, this magnificent building was constructed between 1882 and 1898 on the site of an old fort. Because of its fame as a national monument, there is a museum here of items belonging to and associated with Argentina's presidents. The official office chair of the president is named after and represents Argentina’s first president. The impetus for the Pink House began when a former President felt that the state house was being overshadowed by the adjacent grand post office building.
