About Buenos Aires

Known for activities ranging from the contagious tango to the worship of futbol demigods such as Maradona and Messi, Buenos Aires is gaining fans from around the world. And, with the price of hotel rooms, you can stay the way long as you'd like. Located in the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires has a decidedly European feel. In the 19th century, Italians, Spaniards, and Germans immigrated en masse, bringing their architecture, food and culture. The city, like its tango, is a blend of passion and grace. Feel its pulse at attractions such as the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, which showcases the contemporary art movement in South America, and the Parque Tres de Febrero, the city's lush park and gathering place. Popular things to do here include taking in a traditional tango show (or class), a soccer match at Boca Stadium or an opera at the Teatro Colon. Traditional Argentine cuisine focuses heavily on beef, so try some a la parrilla (grill) or asado (barbeque). Hotels are ridiculously inexpensive and based in neighborhood. The city center (micrometer) is good for business hotels and Palermo. Retiro and Recoleta are better for atmosphere.

Popular Attractions in Buenos Aires

Plaza de Mayo
4.4/5
152 Reviews
Square
The Plaza de Mayo is a prestigious plaza in Buenos Aires, regarded by the Argentines as the nerve center of the Republic. It is not only a historical testimony to the development of the city of Buenos Aires, but also a memorial to the independence of the Argentine Republic, which has been in existence for hundreds of years. There is a May Tower in the center of plaza square to commemorate the May Revolution in Argentina. The pink building behind the square is the Presidential Palace of Argentina.
Casa Rosada
4.5/5
102 Reviews
Historical Architecture
Casa Rosada, also known as the Presidential Palace, is located on the east side of the Plaza de Mayo and is a Spanish-style rose-colored building. In 1873, President Sarmiento painted the presidential palace pink, because red was the color of the federalist at that time, white was the color of its opposition, and the two colors became pink together, also symbolizing the unity of political factions.
Recoleta Cemetery
4.3/5
112 Reviews
Cemetery
A cemetery for the stars, this graveyard is the final resting place for some of Argentina's most notorious and beloved citizens, including Raúl Alfonsín, Eva Perón, and a number of presidents. First built around a convent and church, the cemetery became part of a wealthy neighborhood after upper-class Argentinians fled to Recoleta during the 1870s yellow fever epidemic. Today, the cemetery contains elaborate mausoleums, statues and tombs - most in good shape, although a few have succumbed to the ravages of time. Tree-lined walkways allow visitors to stroll leisurely through the area.
La Boca
4.4/5
98 Reviews
Featured Neighbourhood
Located in the coastal area of Buenos Aires, La Boca Neighborhood has brightly colored buildings and is a very famous sight in Buenos Aires. The neighborhood has a strong artistic atmosphere and is ideal for taking pictures. The Argentine football team "Boca Youth Team" is also stationed here. There is also a museum that records and shows the team's glorious history and other achievements.
