Avenida AlvearThis avenue is named after General Carlos Maria de Alvear, who had an outstanding performance in the heroic deed for freedom organized by General San Martin. Starting at the Plazoleta Carlos Pellegrini, it ends seven blocks away, where the Alvear memorial stands. Along the way you will view different residences and small palaces that survived town.The most exclusive representatives of haute couture are on this avenue; maisons such as Versace, Nina Ricci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, as well as fine jewelries, shoe stores and leather garment stores.
Casa RosadaThis pale pink palace is the official presidential residence and Argentine government headquarters. The first-floor balcony on the building`s northern wing is used by the country`s leaders.
Caminito Street MuseumThe Caminito Museum Street is a colorful and distinctive pedestrian zone that since 1959 has functioned as an open-air museum and art market. Painted a patchwork of colors, this string of photogenic buildings offer quality souvenirs, sculptures, and free open-air tango demonstrations. It takes its name from a tango.
Colon TheaterThe tour of the theater and museum provides a glimpse of the building`s inner workshops including visits with set-builders, costumers, and wig-makers.
Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos AiresFounded in 2001 and started with just the permanent collection owned by its director, Eduardo Constantini, MALBA aims at promoting Latin American art in all its disciplines. Constantini donated to this post-modern gallery works of art that take us on a journey through the history of Spanish American art, from the beginning of its avant-garde movement at the turn of the century to the present. The collection is arranged in such a way to expose the similarities as well as the differences between the artists, other than in chronological order.
ObeliscoThis monolith is a meeting place for political demonstrations, musical performances and celebrations over victories of the national soccer team. It was dedicated in 1936 to commemorate the anniversary of Buenos Aires first foundation. It measures 70 meters high and is made of reinforced concrete.The obelisk brightens with white lights at night, although, the gleams of surrounding neon billboards is what gives the area its unique and colorful glow.
Plaza DorregoThis historic plaza was the sight of the swearing of National Independence in 1816 before Don Juan Martín de Pueyrredón. During the colony, it was a resting post for wagons travelling from the port to what is now Plaza de Mayo along the first roadway, known today as Calle Defensa. Today it is the site of the San Pedro Telmo Antique Fair, where street performances by tango dancers, musicians, mimes and colourful characters mingle with the painters, antiquarians and street vendors in a bohemian rhapsody of song, dance and nostalgia. Ramble the colonial cobblestone streets of the Barrio de San Telmo to Avenida Independencia and Balcarce, to see El Viejo Almacen from the early colonial days, now a traditional tango
Puerto MaderoUp until the epic restoration in 1994, the brick docks lining the old port of Buenos Aires remained abandoned. The area now thrives with modern residential and business lofts and offices, bars, restaurants, an eight-theatre cinema complex, and a university while retaining the original English redbrick facades. The 15-block area runs two kilometres along the river bank dotted with fine dining, such as the Parolaccia di Mare . Two historic ships from the Argentine Armada, the Corbeta Uruguay and the Fragata Sarmiento, are moored quayside as floating naval museums.
San TelmoIt is the most unique neighborhood in Buenos Aires with vintage Spanish architecture, interesting restaurants and nightlife including tango shows. Also found along these cobblestone streets are antique shops and the history of Tango.
The Recoleta CemeteryIn the elite neighborhood of Recoleta brings to life the history of its country like no other graveyard in the world. Presidents, dictators, legends, heroes and scoundrels are all buried side by side in a gorgeous display of sculptures and architectural masterpieces. Evita Peron is buried here after her corpse was stolen and copied and stolen again. The cemetery is 13 acres and it can be easy to get lost.
