Avenida Cordoba, Buenos Aires

Córdoba Avenue is one of the principal thoroughfares in Buenos Aires, Argentina.HistoryMayor Torcuato de Alvear, inspired by the urban redevelopment works in Paris at the hand of Baron Haussmann, drew up master plans for major boulevards, running east to west, every six blocks. During the 1880s, Córdoba Avenue was included in the plan and widened. The Buenos Aires Metro authority at the time, operated by the Spanish-Argentine concern CHADOPyF, built Line 17px largely under Córdoba Avenue during the 1930s. Following the popularization of the automobile in Argentina during the 1960s, a 1967 ordinance made the avenue a one-way thoroughfare, east to west (making Córdoba Avenue one of the major routes used by the city's evening commuters).OverviewThe avenue's outset at Eduardo Madero Avenue is the continuation of Cecilia Grierson Street in Puerto Madero. Past this point, Córdoba Av. enters downtown Buenos Aires and passes along the northern end of the financial district. Microsoft's Latin American headquarters, opened in 2000, and the 42-story Alas building are located on this corner; the Alas building, built in the early 1950s by the administration of Juan Perón for the Argentine Air Force, was the tallest in Argentina until 1995. Past Leandro Alem Avenue (the city's original shoreline), the avenue climbs around 15 m (50 ft) in a block-long segment known as "el bajo" - an incline where the riverfront once was. The Lancaster Hotel, located at the top of the incline, is where writer Graham Greene stayed in Buenos Aires while writing his celebrated mystery, The Honorary Consul.

    Córdoba Avenue, for me, represents only a destination for shopping, will meet with several locations, such as: tascani, kosiuko, cheeky, mimo, among others. I give you a hint, there is the gurruchaga Street that cuts the av cordoba, there it will find many brands stores clothing sport, urban, white line either. Having different, is considered them outlet, but if you got time and you like you will find many things, for example Gola sneakers that far outweigh the $1,000 pesos there you can get them from $400. This 1606 Street Gurruchaga (Gola) already belongs to the Palermo Soho area...

    I went with the empty suitcase ready to buy in various outlets. I walked, rode and nothing. I went into several stores and converted weight gave the same price in reais in Brazil. I was wrong and I didn't buy anything. I don't know if it was bad luck, but at least in stores of sports brands that entered, some 5 or 6, didn't have good price no.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
