  • A reflection of Argentine: how big it can be done. It is difficult to cross this huge Avenue, but it is impressive to see the amount of traffic that moves out there.

  • I lost great part of their charm with the construction of the metrobus, has not if not let be a point of major tour of the city, you can see the obelisk and it is the Centre of the city.

  • I think it is the Avenue longer and wide of buenos aires, a nice place to stroll and visit shops and restaurants.
