  • Very nice place. People are resting on the grass, reading, sunbathing, we were in a group and we were playing with children while resting the walk through the city.

  • Ideal for family rides, drink mate and spend a different evening. We were in March and pretty hot.

  • Probably the worst plaza I saw in BA. Small park style that is in a busy traffic area. Only take in if you are walking nearby  more »

  • A rather grubby plaza with a large statute. However, it represents a useful transport hub with many buses, the Subte, Metrobus and bicisenda all connecting at Plaza Italia. Around the Plaza are the entrances to the Botanical Gardens, La Rural exhibition centre and the new EcoParque (formerly the city zoo)
  • One of the most important key points in the city, it is located on a very important avenue (Av. del Libertador). Near many important and diverse places, from Art Museums to well-maintained woods. "Plaza del Libertador" is very well maintained and contains beautiful art. A must-visit for tourist.
  • Eat some pizza, visit the "Jardín botanico". Go to the zoo, or just walk 4 blocks to the "Rosedal".
  • a beautiful place, surronded by places such as Botanical Garden, the zoo, theaters and la Rural, a place in which a lot of events take place.
  • Nice square, nice food, good transport hub. Not much else.
