Plaza Italia, Buenos Aires

2.7
A small urban park draws visitors to Plaza Italia, featuring a statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who fought in Europe and South America during the 19th century and earned the nickname the "Hero of the Two Worlds." At one corner of the park, you'll see a column brought from the Roman Forum--at more than 2,000 years old, it is one of the most significant monuments in the capital.

  • All the squares of Buenos Aires are beautiful, the grasses well cut and green, many historical statues and benches to rest. The whole town has a lot of culture and beauty to see.

  • Formerly known as the Plaza de los Portones. It is located in front of the Argentine Rural Society and the Ecopark (former zoo). It is not very large and stands out for the imposing monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi inaugurated in 1904. From this place departed the first electric tram of the city in 1897, today many public transport lines pass.
