The plaza and surrounding buildings were erected over four centuries ago by the Jesuits, and the area features multiple entrances to the old tunnels beneath Buenos Aires. Take a tour through the area and see the gates leading underground and learn about the history of the plaza and the city itself. Be aware that tour guides only speak Spanish. The plaza today has many artisanal shops, cafes, and small restaurants.

  • We visited family in the Manzana de las Luces and great was our surprise when accessing this world only referred in our history books. For those who travel from the interior of the country, it is an unforgettable experience.

  • Walk for those who want to immerse themselves in local history. Some details we lose, as it is a place designed for local visits. Guided tours only in Spanish.

  • Nice ride, I confess that I expected a little more, but it was cool and curious. Shows the oldest part of Buenos Aires, where there were some tunnels linking the main buildings of the era of colonization. All with a guide that explains everything in detail.
