Known in Argentina as the 'Government House,' Casa Rosada has housed the Argentinian president's office since the 1860s. 

Its balcony is widely recognized as the country's leaders have historically made use of it for important addresses. 

Juan Perón memorably spoke from the balcony to some 250,000 or more people after his October 1954 arrest.

Several days later Perón married the actress Eva Duarte. 

Fondly known as Evita, their political rise is romanticized in the play and movie of the same name: Evita.

La Casa Rosada is the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina. The palatial mansion is known officially as Casa de Gobierno.
