Parque Lezama, Buenos Aires

3.1
#10 of 41 in Parks in Buenos Aires
Head to Parque Lezama to mingle with locals away from the main tourist tracks. Though the park was once considered the city's founding site in 1536, archeological evidence has since contradicted this historical claim to fame. Nevertheless, the grounds boast several worthwhile points of interest, including a national history museum and a picturesque Russian church made entriely of materials from St. Petersburg. Challenge one of the old-timers who cluster around the outdoor tables to play chess, and see how your game stacks up against a wily opponent.

  • It is an iconic place in the city, but it belongs more to the neighborhood to the city. The mystique of the Park remain residents of San Telmo and it has been restored without altering their original mark to give more emphasis to bring tourism back to grow on what characterizes the Buenos Aires city. It is not safe to wander at night, and less alone, should be aware of the movements of the place. At least avoid losing by the Park. He has improved since his "restoration". Guided visit to the same you don't need. Ideal for summer days, to go with the family.

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.
