The beautiful and fascinating capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is full of interesting monuments and breathtaking sights that showcase its colorful history and personality. Sightseeing here is equally fun by yourself as with a group.
The city’s two most recognizable sights are the Obelisco, a towering white stone obelisk that keeps watch over the widest avenue in the world (9 de Julio), and Caminito, a pedestrian alley and open-air museum chronicling the city’s hard-luck port origins. However, just as the city of Paris is so much more than the Eiffel Tower, Buenos Aires has a lot more to offer the visitor, such as monumental public squares, attractive gardens and historic sites.
The fairytale-like Rose Garden is easily the most beautiful spot in Buenos Aires. Amongst the roses, pergolas and fountains you will see local lovers embracing and families enjoying their slice of paradise. The nearby Evita Museum provides a charming look at the personal and political sides of Argentina’s most revered figure, Evita Peron, while the museum’s leafy terrace café is a hit as well.
Another Buenos Aires must is the city’s main opera house. The Colon Theater is as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside. You can go for theater tours or to attend operas and concerts. Or read on for more recommendations on Buenos Aires’ best sightseeing.
