Buenos Aires

Travel Guide
Buenos Aires showing a high-rise building and a city
Argentina’s capital city has a distinctly European flavour, a rich history and buzzing nightlife.

The 19th century architecture of this beautiful city has both French and Italian influences, which can be seen in its tree-lined avenues and boulevards as well as its brightly coloured houses. It’s also renowned for its colourful neighbourhoods and some of the best and most diverse nightlife in the world.

A good place to start is the Plaza de Mayo, located in the Downtown area of the city. This, and the Casa Rosada (Pink House), which houses the office of the President of Argentina, are where the Argentine Revolution took place, when Argentina gained independence from Spain in 1810. If you’re looking to shop, head to Florida and Lavelle Streets where international designers are represented. There are also plenty of shops locally in Palermo Soho and Viejo.

Take a trip to La Recoleta Cemetery where you can see the tomb of Argentina's charismatic first lady, Eva Perón, better known as Evita. Wander among the many tombs and grave sites of military leaders, Nobel Prize winners and other well-known Argentinians.

From the cemetery, take the metro north of Recoleta to Palermo, one of the city’s most contemporary neighbourhoods. Wander through the cobbled streets past terraced houses and trendy boutiques and cafés.

Children and adults will enjoy a day out at the Buenos Aires Zoo. One of the zoo’s aims is to become a world leader in conservation and wildlife preservation. If you have children with you, pick up a container of food at the entrance so they can feed the animals. At night, return to Palermo Hollywood to hang out with the locals in some of the city’s best bars.

Buenos Aires also has some spectacular scenery and views, offering plenty of photo opportunities. The sunset vista of the city from the port district of Puerto Madero is not to be missed.

Argentinians also love their sport. If you’re a soccer fan, head south to La Boca, the spiritual home of the Boca Juniors. Watch a match at the Bombonera stadium to experience the passion and energy of the Argentinians at its best.
