  • The Plaza Lavalle is a homage to various aspects of the history of argentina. The hero that gives name to this extensive Park has a statue on a central column. However, Palm trees and centenary trees frame one of the most popular due to its proximity to the courts of Justice and the Teatro Colón. The views of these buildings is very nice. To them must be added a unique building: Massue viewpoint with its dome and ornamentation. It is also noteworthy the synagogue of the Israelite congregation. Other noteworthy sights are the tribute to the Ballet Nacional and in memory of the victims of the AMIA. And, of course, the stalls selling used books of legal subjects. Ideal for a walk morning show, in couple or in solitary.

  • Not fail to pass through this square, where you can see the Palace of Justice, the Teatro Colón, in addition to a break in the Centre of the city.

  • An emblematic plaza of the city, unfortunately forgotten. It is a small green lung in the area of courts and the Teatro Colón, with beautiful and ancient trees. However, it is not as careful as it should. Totally abandoned square games and is also a place that usually occupy sleeping homeless people. Beyond that, seem to be facing different arrangements to improve it
