  • It is a very nice place. With a tree of more than 100 years. Ideal place to escape the noise of the city. Very close to one of the most important synagogues in buenos aires and Museum of the Jewish people, and famous teatro Colón. Don't miss a visit to the theatre

  • 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.

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.
