Top places to see in Buenos Aires
  • Cabildo

    Constructed in the 17th century, the Cabildo is the former Town Hall of Buenos Aires. In the 1800s, Argentines gathered at the Cabildo and declared their independence from Spain. This spurred the May Revolution and the removal of Viceroy Cisneros, the Spanish head of government.

  • Avenida 9 del Julio

    Avenue 9 del Julio, the busiest street in Buenos Aires, is named after the Argentine independence day, July 9th. Along the street are numerous landmarks, businesses, retail stores, and restaurants, including the famous Obelisk.

  • Tango Performances

    A trip to Buenos Aires would not be complete without attending a tango performance. In the late 1800s, tango was a dance for the people in the poorest barrios, or neighborhoods. Today, tango is a phenomenon throughout Argentina and the world.

  • Recoleta Cemetery

    This famous cemetery is located in the charming Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

  • La Bombonera

    Inaugurated in 1940 as "Coliseo de la Boca," La Bombonera was nicknamed as such due to its chocolate-box shape.  The stadium is owned by Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's most famous football clubs and holds over 60,000 people. But futbol is not the only spectator occasion held in the stadium.

    La Casa Rosada is the official seat of the executive branch of the government of Argentina, located at the most important plaza, called Plaza de Mayo.

    Puerto Madero is a trendy new neighborhood along the Río de la Plata riverbank featuring outstanding modern architecture. It is a recycle area with restaurants, hotels, office buildings, cinemas, theaters, and shops, and a marina. Currently more buildings are under construction in the east side.

  • Bosque de Palermo (Parque Tres de Febrero)

    Bosque de Palermo is a green zone of 25 hectares located in Palermo. It is known for its groves, lakes, and rose gardens (El Rosedal). Many people use the park every day, both on foot and bicycle, and this number increases greatly at the weekends.

Discovering Northern Argentina

by Lena

My friends and I went to Northern Argentina this past weekend. This has been one of the trips I've been most looking forward to, as Northern Argentina is known for both its culture and natural beauty. I talked to my host family before leaving, who said that Northern Argentina is like a country of its own when compared to the province of Buenos Aires. The provinces of Salta and Jujuy have far more people who are indigenous to Argentina than the province of Buenos Aires.

Day trip to the Venice of Argentina

by Lena

Tigre, a suburb of Buenos Aires, is one of the top day trip destinations from the capital city. It's easy to get to, tranquil when compared with the madness of Buenos Aires, and still has plenty of things to do. Better yet, it's situated on the Paraná Delta, which makes it ideal for boating or enjoying a waterside lunch.

The meeting point of the Andes and wine region

by Lena

My friends and I made a weekend trip out to Mendoza, which is famous in Argentina as wine region. Mendoza is close to the Argentina-Chile border and sits on the eatsern side of the Andes. It's also a bustling city that is famous for its tree-lined streets and lively plazas. Mendoza is technically in the desert, and it sustains itself through its acecquias—irrigation ditches—that run on nearly every street.
