Parque Lezama, Buenos Aires

3.1
#9 of 40 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.

  • Very nice park. Some trees have been imported from other countries and they have signs both in English and Spanish explaining origination and name.
  • Nice park, recently redeveloped. Often markets are held here. Great place to meet friends and close to Avenida Caseros, where there are several restaurants.
  • Parque Lezama is a really relaxing parc where a lot of locals gather to have a family picnic or just to hang out.
  • Beautifull park landscaped by Julian Charles Thays (dubbed Carlos Thays by the Porteños), considered the first foundation of the settlement Nuestra Señora de Santa Maria de Buenos Aires in 1536 and was the second largest slave trading site in South America when the property of the Horne family (of which Cape Horne in Africa was named).
  • good place to sit for long

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.
