In the south, the mystical origins. In the center, the populated everyday life. In the north, the fancy style. Meeting points of a historic city.
Buenos Aires was born in the south, over one of the very few natural gullies of the city –currently occupied by Lezama Park. However, the actual center of the city is the May Square which concentrates around itself the main governmental, religious and civil buildings. From that point and up to the Congress, the May Avenue –a street capable of telling the great times of Argentine history- operates as the “decumanus maximus” of a Roman city. San Telmo, on the other hand, is a Bohemian neighborhood with cobblestone streets; Italian style houses; antique shops full of Murano lamps, vinyl disks and pearl necklaces; boutique hotels and cozy cafes. Towards the river, La Boca neighborhood hosts the mythical Buenos Aires, where tango and soccer live together between metal sheet houses painted in vibrant colors and vanguardist artistic foundations. Land of immigrants and painters’ secret haven, Caminito, is one of the most acknowledged tourist images of Buenos Aires. Towards the north, Recoleta represents the best testimony of a chic and fancy Buenos Aires, a city inspired in Haussmann’s Paris. Here are the embassies, the most important hotels, international stores, art galleries, the cemetery with tombs of the great people of our history, presidents, politicians, militaries, scientists, artists and other celebrities; important museums, monuments and the most representative buildings.
