Centro Cultural Villa Victoria

Mar del Plata

Victoria Ocampo, founder of the literary journal Sur, hosted literary salons with prominent intellectuals from around the world – Borges, Le Corbusier, and Rabindranath Tagore were among more distinguished guests – here at her summer chalet, its gardens still bursting with lavender. It’s now a cultural center that features changing art and cultural exhibitions, plus seminars and workshops on photography, illustration, literature, conflict resolution, drama and comedy.
