Avenida de Mayo, Buenos Aires

4.3
As you stroll along the tree-lined Avenida de Mayo you might want to remind yourself that you're still in Buenos Aires, not Paris or Madrid. The famous avenue boasts a distinctly European atmosphere, often compared to La Gran Via or Le Champs-Elysees thanks to its high-end shopping and cafe culture. Check out the stores nestled in the avenue's Art Nouveau and Neoclassic buildings to browse through some top fashion or memorable souvenirs. Pop in for a drink at charming Cafe Tortoni, whose wood-lined walls have welcomed customers since 1858.

  • It is a street that resembles the Gran Via in Madrid. There are many restaurants and pizzerias and some local Spanish shows. The first businesses were of Spanish investors, especially the bars. It is advisable to walk from laPlaza of Congress toward the Plaza de Mayo and you will find the Cathedral and the Casa Rosada. To appreciate the buildings should look up.

  • Walking through the neighborhood of Congress invites me to close my eyes and thus feel at other times to open and locate me on the more latent present in Argentina. The wide Avenue with buildings witnesses of history. There were arriving immigrants in hotels where to stay to start their new life in the American continent. Walk from the Congress of the nation to the House pink with its squares, passing through the beautiful Palacio Barolo and other beautiful buildings - many Government-, canteens including well-preserved Café Tortoni, reaching the historic Cabildo, and take many photos among pigeons. It is a forced journey.
