Plaza de Mayo, Goverment House, el Cabildo The Cathedral, etc. Tips (18)

Plaza de Mayo, in BA's...

Favorite thing 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.

Fondest memory 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.

Plaza de Mayo....Square of people

Favorite thing cross and walk on the largest street of the world (150 metres), its name is 'Avenida 9 de Julio' and in the middle there is an Obelisco.

Fondest memory Here is where presidents were used to talk to the country

Favorite thing Plaza de Mayo is the central spot for political demonstrations. March 24th, 2002 was the 26th anniversary of the military coup in Argentina, so there were demonstrations around the Plaza.
