Thanks

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Plaza de Mayo, in BA's...

by travelmad478

Plaza de Mayo, in BA's Microcentro district, is the country's political center. The photo here shows the Casa Rosada (the presidential palace), just one of several monumental buildings around this square. The Avenida de Mayo runs from here to the Plaza del Congreso (where the legislature is located), across BA's main thoroughfare, Av. 9 de Julio. Buenos Aires is composed of a jumble of neighborhoods, each with a distinctive character as expressed by its architecture, commerce, and cultural offerings. There's a wide range of styles, from the high-priced apartments and restaurants of the Recoleta district to the colorful, gritty streets of La Boca. My favorites were San Telmo (not the prettiest, but where I ate the best empanadas I've ever had) and Palermo, which is full of green space.

Flamboyant, Colourful, Sensual

by mircaskirca

Buenos Aires and tango are synonymous terms, and tango is an integral part of the city. The history of tango began in the late 19th century. The dance started in the lower-class districts of Buenos Aires taking place in the periphery of the city, bars, cafes and courtyards. The music derived from the fusion of various forms of music from Europe and the themes referred to the ordinary man and his problems, the city and memories. The nice songs are mostly about broken hearts and misfortunes.

Carlos Gardel became associated with the transition from a lower-class to a respectable middle-class dance and became one of the most popular tango artists of all time. His beautiful voice and macho look made him Argentina's favourite star. The invention and wide use of the radio, records and film helped spread his fame worldwide, and make this time the Golden Age of Tango. Astor Piazzola became the next tango superstar. He paved the way for a new age of tango to begin. In the late 1990s a new style Tango Nuevo, a fusion between tango and electronic music, begin appearing worldwide, with most famous Gotan Project, Tanghetto, Bajofondo Tango Club and Narcotango.

Argentine tango is also the main subject of Carlos Saura's film Tango and numerous films show tango in several scenes, such as Last Tango in Paris, Scent of a Woman, Evita and many more.

Tango left the brothels to conquer the world for one thing: the sensuality of the movement. Flamboyant, colourful, sensual, this is a seductive world of tango. You can find tango all over Buenos Aires at milongas and by walking around the city's authentic neighbourhoods, as La Boca and San Telmo. There are hundreds of good tango bars and academies so it won't be hard to find a place.
