10 must see places in buenos Aires


Published on

By Younes Aitouazdi
1. Plaza de Mayo
The plaza has been here since the 16th century. At the eastern end is the Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace. From the main balcony several Argentinean politics address the populace (the Peron’s for example)
It is here where numerous gatherings and political protests have taken place, including the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo, a regular assembly of mothers protesting the loss of loved ones called Desaparecidos (the disappeared ones, during the Dirty War)
Opposite the Casa Rosada on the Plaza de Mayo is the resplendent former Spanish town hall, the Cabildo, a fascinating old colonial building fronted by arches that once encircled the plaza, back during the May Revolution in 1810. The guards outside the building are members of the revered Regimiento de Patricios which was formed in 1806. They still wear their traditional uniforms, designed nearly 200 years ago.
2. La Recoleta Cemetery
It is the site of the Iglesia de Nuestra senora de Pilar, a colonial church that is a national monument. It has several very attractive open spaces and public gardens, including the Plaza Francia where the city’s craft fair takes place on a Sunday.
The Cementerio de la Recoleta sounds an unlikely place for a spot of sightseeing but it is, in fact, one of the city's main tourist attractions. The necropolis is a city within a city, with numerous huge monuments fashioned in white marble, dark granite, and lustrous bronze, decorated with numerous stone angels and statues of the Virgin. The great and the good of Argentina's past lie here, including Evita Peron, who always attracts a big crowd. A number of past presidents, sports stars and writers were also laid to rest here.
3. Mataderos
Its located approximate 6km southwest of Caballito. This barrio takes its name from the slaughterhouses, which used to be here. They went a long time ago but Mataderos is still home to a livestock market. You will find here one of Buenos Aires' most incredible events: the Feria de Mataderos which takes place on Sundays.

This is a celebration of the country’s rural traditions, folk music, traditional crafts and regional food specialities are served and local dances are performed. The highpoint of the day is the display of gaucho skill in which riders participate in exciting traditional events.
4. Teatro Colon
This extravagant seven stories Opera House has impressed visitors since it was opened in 1908. A small museum is situated in the lobby and guided tours are available in English. The tours go through the basement workshops, rehearsal rooms, stage and seating areas. It’s a wonderful place to watch opera and ballet and listen to classical music
vies, showing an important part of the Buenos Aires history.
