Roque Saenz Pena Avenue, Buenos Aires
(4.5/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The street crosses the 9 of Julio diagonally right in the obelisk, so surely you will come by. If it is the Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosada just follow her from the Obelisk that you get. This is where the BSAS Bus (see evaluation of)

  • With a walk from here to there, full of people doing paperwork Bank, of tourists taking pictures toward the Plaza de Mayo and the Obelisco. The truth that can be enjoyed if you stay still and look at the French architecture, especially the building of the former Bank of Boston. Worth a while but without getting into the pandemonium.
