  • stay in a great square to walk, and is always very traditional take photo with this statue.

  • This feed is opposite the Argentine Congress and sits on a square complex, monuments and architectural buildings pretty much, despite the evident poverty I've seen there, with homeless under tarps tied in the trees of the Park. There were a lot of strange people there too, possibly unemployed people by the current financial crisis in that country. Recommend the visitation but with caution.

  • In plaza Congress will draw you attention many things, its buildings, the milestone of the km 0 and this statue of the thinker. It is a place with many works of art that deserve to be appreciated.

  • It is not a reproduction of the original "the thinker". Statues both share the same mold made by Rodin. A beauty in the middle of the two congresses square.
