Plaza de la Republica, Buenos Aires
(4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Plaza de la República is a city square in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina. It is located in the San Nicolás quarter, at the intersection of the city's three main arteries: Ninth of July Avenue, Corrientes Avenue, and Diagonal Norte. It derives its name and associations from a church once sited on the square, San Nicolás de Bari, where the country's national flag was hoisted for the first time.The plaza is the site of the Obelisk of Buenos Aires, designed by Alberto Prebisch and inaugurated in 1937. The plaza, originally a circular esplanade paved in stone, was enlarged to its current dimensions in 1962. Its present layout was established in 1971, when Corrientes Avenue was rerouted through the plaza and around the obelisk to ease car traffic into the city's financial district.MetroThree lines of the Buenos Aires Metro have connecting stations underneath the plaza, and are accessible from either side of the Ninth of July Avenue. These are: "Carlos Pellegrini" station on the Line 20px "9 de Julio" station on the Line 20px "Diagonal Norte" station on the Line 20px Together they offer an easy route around most of the important places in the capital.

  • I didn't even know that the Obelisk was on Republic square, just like me you will surely in the obelisk and go on anyway. Besides the Obelisk has the letters BA to photograph.

  • The square in which is located the Obelisk of Buenos Aires. Stay right at the intersection of AV. Corrientes Ave. 9 de Julio. Get off at station Carlos Pellegrini subway. The region is very busy during the day and, at night, especially during the week, usually deserted and a little dangerous.
