Landmark
Feel the passion of tango culture in the air as you stroll down Avenida Corrientes, known to locals as "the street that never sleeps." The avenue's long-held reputation for throbbing nightlife has tied it to the tango culture, so much so that plaques have been laid at 40 of its street corners to celebrate the most influential figures in tango history. The city's cultural hub, the area boasts an abundance of bookshops and theaters, drawing comparisons with Broadway in New York. Pop in to one of the avenue's theaters for a live performance with a distinctly spicy, Argentinean touch.

  • Corrientes Avenue is an emblem of the city of Buenos Aires; its theaters offer the tourist a wide variety of options for recreation. It also has a variety of restaurants that offer different types of menus, at varied prices. And for those who are interested in shopping, also has qualities and prices to compare. If you travel to Buenos Aires, don't take this Avenue.
