This monumental structure was built at the end of the 19th century to house the Bon Marché store. The prevalent economic crisis prevented the store from opening; hence the premises were occupied by smaller shops. In 1896, the first venue of the National Museum of Fine Arts was placed here, where it remained until 1910. In 1908, the Buenos Aires al Pacífico Railway Company purchased part of the property to establish its headquarters, and the place was soon dubbed Pacífico Building. In the 1940s a refurbishment took place, and the appearance of the building was partly altered. A dome was added, covered with frescoes of the most prestigious artists Antonio Berni, Lino Spilimbergo, Juan Carlos Castagnino, Manuel Colmeiro and Demetrio Urruchúa. Abandoned for several years, the old store was reopened in 1990 as a shopping arcade. Four new murals, painted by Rómulo Macció, Josefina Robirosa, Guillermo Roux and Carlos Alonso, were then added. Aside from the wide variety of commercial stores, Galerías Pacífico houses the Borges Cultural Center, which offers exhibitions and arts workshops, and the Julio Bocca Dance and Musical Comedy School.
