Floralis Generica, Buenos Aires

4.2
A giant steel flower reveling in the sun's rays, Floralis Generica dazzles as its petals unfurl afresh each morning. Sprouting forth from a reflecting pool, this giant mechanical bloom represents the rebirth of the new day. Gifted to the people of Buenos Aires in 2002 by architect Eduardo Catalano, the monument has quickly become one of the city's most appealing attractions. At 23 m (75.5 ft), the sculpture cuts an impressive figure any time of day. If you arrive at sunrise, you'll see the flower gradually raise its head to the sky over the course of 20 minutes; at sunset, you can bid goodnight to the closing petals.

  • If you go there only to watch the Metal Flower it is OK (it fallows the sun), but don't miss all the other attractions around this place. Museum, Center of Culture Recoleta, etc.  more »
  • It is in a very good place to relax awhile, enjoy the outdoors and perhaps make a small picnic... Great place to take pictures.

  • Location is wrong! Is 200mts from there. Someone is rejecting the edits... The place is amazing to take photos, read a book or even rest.
  • Wrong location, tried editing it but it rejected it?! Quite an amazing and interesting sculpture of a flower that opens its petals at sunrise and closes at sunset. Needs more information about the sculpture around the park though indeed.
  • interesting yet not that interesting. saw it, ticked it off the 'things to go see in BA' list. ps location is wrong...it's on the west side of the law faculty.
  • Location is wrong, I am already tired to file more reports about that. Everytime they are being rejected
  • Beautiful, but the location is wrong!! You need to go further up to the parque de las Naciones Unidas.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
