Roque Saenz Pena Avenue, Buenos Aires

4.6
Avenida Roque Sáenz Peña, is a main artery in the San Nicolás quarter of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is oriented south-east/north-west, diagonally bisecting the city blocks which give the city centre a checkerboard plan. It is named after President Roque Sáenz Peña, who held power from 1910 to 1914 and passed the law which established universal suffrage, secret ballot and an electoral register.ConnectionsThe north-west corner of Plaza de Mayo is the start of Avenida Presidente Roque Sáenz Peña (i.e. the corner of Avenida Rivadavia and San Martín street), just to the north of the city hall. It runs directly to the northwest and diagonally crosses the following streets: Bartolomé Mitre, Juan Domingo Perón and Sarmiento, and calle Florida, Maipú, Esmeralda, Suipacha and the Carabelas passage, before arriving at Plaza de la República, location of the Obelisk of Buenos Aires, where Avenida 9 de julio meets Avenida Corrientes. Still in a straight diagonal line, it crosses this intersection and continues to the next crossroads, the junction of Lavalle and Libertad in Plaza Lavalle, opposite the Courts of Justice.

  • Avenue that connects the Obelisk to Plaza de Mayo being the shortest path between the two points of interest. Beautiful architecture of the buildings.

  • Better known as the Diagonal Norte, this route unites the Plaza de Mayo and 9 de Julio metres from the Obelisk. There are many buildings of great architectural value. Very interesting to visit in the city.
