Yes, we had a great time. What we basically did was to sightsee all the main buildings and places of Buenos Aires City. These are The National Congress, The Colon Theatre, The Pink House, The Cathedral, Recoleta Neighbourhood and Mayo Square. It was quite an exhausting day, but we enjoyed it, that’s for sure. We left the hotel at 8:00 and we got in at 21:00. Get the picture?
Facing the west square, liesthe imposing building of theCongress’ Palace, conformed by the Senators and the Deputies’ Chambers.
