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.

    the place is very nice but there's not much to do and come take pictures and leave, the site has security then you can go quiet without problems.

    During our city tour in Buenos Aires made a stop to learn about and enjoy the Floralis Genérica. We found very beautiful and sumptuous. We took some great pictures and she as a background. It is worth visiting.

    An eccentric gift to Buenos Aires. Throughout the day opens and closes. Some very beautiful work of art.

    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.

    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
