Cabildo

You are here

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. Today, there is a museum in the Cabildo dedicated to the cause.
