El Obelisco, Buenos Aires
Categories: Monuments, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Built to celebrate the fourth centenary of the founding of Buenos Aires, El Obelisco represents one of the city's central icons. Using pioneering construction techniques, a German firm built the monument in 1936--in a staggering 31 days. Nowadays it's surrounded by some of the most chaotic traffic in the world, as cars and buses hurtle down Avenida Corrientes. The monument serves as a convenient meeting point for locals and tourists alike, who gather there before heading out for a night on the town. Use our Buenos Aires tour planner to visit El Obelisco on your trip to Buenos Aires, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
