Monserrat District, Buenos Aires
This Avenue runs from the Plaza de Mayo to the Plaza del Congreso. It is a wide tree- lined avenue which marked Buenos Aires` transformation from a big village to a modern city. It has a lot of wonderful facades that tell the glory of the past : the style of the building is neoclassic, eclectic and art nouveau... During the XXth century, a lot of famous persons walked on its sidewalks : Federico García Lorca, Carlos Gardel, Nijinsky, Le Corbusier, Jorge Luis Borges, José Ortega y Gasset, George Clemenceau, Albert Einstein, Arthur Rubenstein, Josephine Baker and many more...
This barrio is adjacent to San Telmo. It has a lot of historical buildings including the Santo Domingo Church on Avenida Belgrano and the Museo del la Ciudad. It is nice to wander through for its cobbled street and atmospheric feel.
