Floralis Generica, Buenos Aires
(4.2/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This sculpture is part of the main postcards of Buenos Aires, obligatory stop for those visiting the city. In this place you can take beautiful photos for memory and still have the opportunity to meet the imposing building of the University of Buenos Aires law alongside. Great program to spend time and enjoy some of the beautiful lawn and trees that surround this beautiful work of art.

  • Bad address, this is NOT the Floralis Generica Scupture, this is Parque Thays... is in the other side of the Lawyer University (UBA) in the left is the flower in the rigth is the park
  • This is a gigantic flower, each petal weights around 1000 kilos (1 ton) and it is supposed to open and close the flower, but when I visited it wasn't open. In the park there is not much to see, only this structure. But it is a must see in Buenos Aires and it is a quick stop so you won't spend much time in this
  • Beautiful and attracts attention by the size, but is not that much. Worth the visit if you want to go over nearby attractions (la Recoleta cemetery, National Museum of Fine Arts etc).
  • Great park for a picnic, also there's a Giant Flower made up of some kind of metallic panels that reflect the Buenos Aires skyline. (Or yourself if you're up for an epic selfie) Take a few minutes after visiting the National Museum of fine arts and enjoy the scenery.
  • A nice sight, but a little tourist-packed and boring. There are actually nicer parks very nearby that are almost empty!
