Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 2,800+ 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.

  • Metallic flower is next to the Art Museum. Is a symbol of the city. Theoretically open when it's sunny, but does not work very well. Valley drive by and admire the details of sculpture.

  • Initially, it was a little hard to find, because the Google maps gives a different address, across the University. The place is very nice, like a square and the monument is quite large, yields good pictures. I got the Floralis open, it must be nice to to see her closing.

  • 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 must, take the picture, hunt Pokemons and leave... Night is beautyful, with the lights and so... DO NOT GO ON NIGHT TIME ALONE OR WALKING.
  • Floraris is an interesting monument located in an open area of the Recoleta neighborhood - there's plenty of space to take a walk and admire the monument from different angles.
  • Iconic location of the city, good for your "Been in BA" selfie-taking.
  • This sculpture was designed to move, closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning. Simple beautiful.
