Buenos Aires City Tourist Information

It is a cosmopolitan city and an important tourist destination. Its complex infrastructure makes it one of the most important metropolises in America, given its influence in commerce, finance, fashion, art, gastronomy, education, entertainment and mainly in its marked culture. The most important tourist sites are located in the historic center of the city, a sector formed practically by the neighborhoods of Monserrat and San Telmo. Its urban profile is markedly eclectic. Spanish colonial, art deco, art nouveau, neo-Gothic, Italianate, French Bourbon and French academicism styles are mixed. For the latter added to its building development and marked European influence in its architecture in certain areas. The city began to be built around the Plaza Mayor (today Plaza de Mayo), and the administrative institutions of the Colony were installed in the area. To the east of the Plaza can be seen the Casa Rosada, the current seat of the Executive Power of Argentina. To the north of the Plaza is the Metropolitan Cathedral, which has occupied the same place since colonial times, and the building of the Banco de la Nación Argentina. Another important colonial institution was the Cabildo, located to the west, which is not preserved in its original form since part of its structure was demolished for the opening of Avenida de Mayo and the diagonal Julio A. Roca.
