PLACES TO VISIT IN BUENOS AIRES

OBELISK

The Obelisk of Buenos Aires is a Historical National Monument, emblem of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Located in “Plaza de la República” (Republic Square), in the intersection of Corrientes and 9 de Julio Avenues, it was built to commemorate the fourth centenary of the foundation of the city.

FLORIDA PEDESTRIAN STREET

Florida is a pedestrian street of the City of Buenos Aires that begins in Rivadavia Avenue (before this avenue, it continues with the name of “Perú”, which is also pedestrian for two blocks), and ends in San Martín Square. It is known as the most important pedestrian street of Argentina. Florida Street has many galleries, among which “Galería Jardín” stands out with its many shops that sell computing supplies, as well as “Galerías Pacífico”, a gallery very much visited by tourists.

PUERTO MADERO

Its proximity to the central part of the city, its vast area and its river view turn this neighbourhood into one of the most exclusive of Buenos Aires. During the last years, several first-class residential towers have been built or are being built, among which many stand out, such as Torres El Faro, Torres River View, Torres Le Parc Puerto Madero, Torres Mulieris (under construction), Torre Repsol-YPF, or Torres Renoir, all of them higher than 130 meters, Torres Renoir reaching 171,3 meters. They are among the biggest in Argentina.

COLON THEATRE

Owner of a privileged acoustic, the Colon Theatre of Buenos Aires is among the greatest and most beautiful opera houses in the world. Building works began in 1889. It was designed by Francesco Tamburini and, after his sudden death, Victor Meano followed and carried out the project until 1904, when he died. The project was completed by the Belgian architect Jules Dormal. It opened on 25 May 1908 with a performance of Giuseppe Verdi's Aida. The building is located opposite Lavalle Square (San Nicolás), in a site once occupied by Ferrocarril Oeste's Plaza Parque Station, the terminal of the first railway line in Argentina.

CAMINITO

Caminito is a street museum and a traditional alley of great cultural and touristic value, located in the neighbourhood of La Boca of the City of Buenos Aires. The place acquired cultural significance after inspiring the music for the famous tango called "Caminito" (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto. The walkway stretches from east to west, creating a 150-meter curve, diagonally crossing a block limited by Araoz de Lamadrid Street (to the north), Garibaldi Street (to the west), Magallanes Street (to the south) and Del Valle Iberlucea Street (to the east). Its shape follows the layout of an old railway track, which was later abandoned. In 1959 it officially became a “museum street”, fully pedestrian, with the name of “Caminito”.

RECOLETA

Recoleta is a residential downtown neighbourhood of the City of Buenos Aires; it is an area of great historical and architectonic interest, particularly due to the Cemetery located there, and an important touristic and cultural attraction within the city. It is considered a “fancy” neighbourhood and the value of the square metre is one of the most expensive in such city. Line D of the underground goes through this neighbourhood, as well as the sketch of futures lines F and G.

 

 

 

plaza de mayo

Plaza de Mayo (May Square) is the oldest of Buenos Aires and it is the scenario of all major political events of the Argentine history, except from the Declaration of Independence. At the hub of the square we find the Pirámide de Mayo (May Pyramid), a monument built in 1911 to celebrate the centenary of the Revolution and which was renovated in 1856 by the artist and architect Prilidiano Pueyrredón. Between the Pirámide de Mayo and the House of Government we find the monument to Manuel Belgrano, creator of the National Flag.

san telmo

San Telmo is one of the oldest and most traditional neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires. It is part of the Historic Area of the city and preserves a great part of its architectonic patrimony. Its cobblestone streets, low houses and patios with cisterns provide a picture that seems to be frozen in time. It also stands out for its bars, restaurants, “tanguerías” (tango salons) and, particularly, for the wide variety of antiquaries offering different kinds of products.

Galerías Pacífico

Galerías Pacífico one of the most important and most expensive shopping malls in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is located in the intersection of Florida Street and Córdoba Avenue, a strategic spot of the city.
