Carlos Regazzoni, a recognized argentine artist, lives in retiro in a wharehouse where he also has his atelier. He mainly creates art sculptures using the available iron and train parts that is spread among the area, due to the proximity to the train station (check the iron ants climbing the big sign close to the entrance). The ambiance of the place is not something that most visitors will like; although Carlos is very friendly and likes to talk and talk with those who are interested in his work. If you're interested in going, check before if he's in the country, as he spends 6 months in France and 6 months in Argentina. At night (not every day), the warehouse were he works becomes a restaurant, El Gato Viejo, attended by himself.
