3.5
#7 of 16 in Things to do in Bahia Blanca
Visitors and locals alike flock to Plaza Rivadavia, a picturesque and vibrant square at the heart of the city. Take in the striking aesthetic of the large and symmetrically organized gardens, whose style derives from French landscaping. Pay special attention to the plaza's focal point, a statue of Argentina's first president, Bernardino Rivadavia. This towering monument is flanked by four other statues, donated to the city by Israel and England. Afterwards, head across the road to the gleaming colonial town hall. Plaza Rivadavia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Bahia Blanca Edition.

  • Good place to stroll and to watch a bit of the history of the city of Bahía Blanca. In the surrounding area you will find places to visit, for all tastes. Rivadavia plaza offers a variety of activities for all the Bahienses families and tourists in some days of the year.

  • Years ago this square of an admirable landscape design had roses, sectors of multiple flowers and detailed information of the different tree species. All this could say in the last 20 years progressively was deteriorating and disappearing, while graffiti appeared on the beautiful work that is the monument of Rivadavia, the neglect of security from any time without or with low light and accompanied of some crazy project of remodeling that fortunately was boycotted on multiple occasions by the neighbouring bahienses. The plaza all you need is an enhancement of the already designed oprtunamente and care of existing things, that for a timely tourist at the appropriate hours, will not fail to be a very nice place for such city's central square
