7,000 hectares of green land, dotted with over 5,000 plant species from all over the world.
A natural, urban complex.
In the capital’s northern zone, in the Palermo neighbourhood, this green space occupies almost seven hectares. The larger area is home to distinct varieties of Argentinean flora, while the smaller area is dedicated to that of the five continents. In 1937, it was named after Carlos Thays, who promoted it in the late 18th century, and it has since then accumulated over 5,000 plant species, making it a National Historic Monument. The impressive natural, urban area is looked over by a red brick building, similar to a castle, and is dotted with beautiful sculptures and gardens to stroll through in all seasons, even if you are not particularly interested in the natural world. For those who are, bear in mind that they often organise activities for adults, such as workshops, conferences, seminars and guided tours.
