Every trip to Buenos Aires has to start with a walk through the mythical Plaza de Mayo. This is not only the birthplace of the city but also the political epicenter of Argentina. Here is the famous Casa Rosa, the office of the president of Argentina, whose balcony became famous in the world when he went to give his speech Perón with his partner Evita. We will also find the Cabildo and the Metropolitan Cathedral, which keeps the remains of the General. San Martin, the greatest hero of the nation.
Theaters, cafes, bookstores and pizzerias, a perfect summary of the Buenos Aires idiosyncrasies that find their perfect balance on Corrientes Avenue. This street is the favorite of locals when they want to see a theatrical show and is known as the broadway of South America. And after the show nothing better than a slice (or better three) of pizza, here you will find the best in the city. Also at its intersection with Avenida 9 de Julio, is the Obelisk, the icon of Buenos Aires par excellence.
These two neighborhoods are the classics if you want to know the beauty of Buenos Aires. San Telmo, is a bohemian neighborhood where Tango breathes in every corner. Do not miss the opportunity to take a walk through its cobbled streets and visit its old market. Further south is the Barrio de La Boca, known internationally for its football club, this old port neighborhood still retains its aesthetics of the last century, with conventillos and colorful houses, which formed a Buenos Aires immigrant.
If you want to live the rhythm of 2×4 on your feet Buenos Aires has many proposals for you. You can start by watching some of their wonderful Tango salon shows, which are undoubtedly one of the best in the world. Now that you are familiar with this dance, why not dance it?

These dance halls, are something like the clubs of the nineteenth century, there meet the Buenos Aires people who love tango with a single purpose, dance it!
Buenos Aires is not only the city in the world with the most libraries per capita, but also has the honor of having the most beautiful in the world. The Grand Splendid Athenaeum was an old theater cinema, where the great tango singers once gave their shows. The theater closed at the end of the 90s, but it was reborn as a bookstore, the largest in the city and undoubtedly more incredible.
Located in the middle of one of the most elegant neighborhoods of the city, this old cemetery is full of sumptuous tombs of the most powerful families in Argentina. Among its small corridors we will see hundreds of marble and bronze statues, which convey different messages, stories and symbolisms, paying tribute and remembering those who rest there.
