The second-largest city of South America is also the most visited. You only have to take one of our flights to Buenos Aires to see why. Located on the western plain of the River Plate, ‘the Paris of South America’ is an eclectic city, made up of many different waves of immigrants.
The combination of architectural styles, ranging from Art Nouveau and Bourbon French to modern skyscrapers, ensure that there is always something new to see. The historic quarter, located in the neighbourhoods of Montserrat and San Telmo, boasts emblematic places and buildings such as the Plaza de Mayo. The city was built around this square, which now plays host to celebrations and movements such as the protests held almost every Thursday by the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo. You will also find the Casa Rosada, the seat of executive power from which Evita Perón made her balcony speeches.
For those who want to familiarise themselves with the art of tango, there is nothing better than a visit to the colourful La Boca neighbourhood, whose little houses received a vast amount of immigrants in the 19th century. One of its highlights is the Caminito (‘little walkway’), a traditional alley and now street museum honouring the inspiration for the famous ‘Caminito’ tango. If it’s sophistication that you’re after, look no further than the Puerto Matadero, one of the most modern and exclusive social scenes in Buenos Aires, with stunning views over the river and impressive skyscrapers, which reflect the scale of the city’s development and expansion in recent years.
Anyone tired of sightseeing can easily catch a show, as Buenos Aires boasts the largest concentration of theatres in the world, with many located in the popular Avenida Corrientes. Amongst them is the Colón, one of the five most important opera houses in the world. It goes without saying that Buenos Aires and its irresistible charm is nothing short of theatrical!
