Landmark Tourist Spot
The iconic green space of Plaza Colon serves as a meetingplace for locals. Conveniently located near the beach and casino, the plaza has become an important social space within the city. Take a walk around the square to meet some locals, or browse through the shops that offer handcrafted souvenirs. In the evenings, a water-and-lights show takes place on the large fountain. Several statues memorializing Argentinians can be found in the plaza as well. As with most cities, be careful with your belongings and watch for pickpockets.

  • Very good structure, the era in which things in Argentina were well done. Wide, comfortable, well structured, but need updating and cleaning (the filthy with their dogs, etc.). Luckily, "la calesita" was saved from stupid changes to the years of peronism and Kirchner, who to a portion of the square changed its name to "Plaza of the Millennium", etc.; typical of the years of the imbecility of certain sector of Argentines. Instead of "silly things" they could do a underground indoor Beach, which would come very well in times of high, and to satisfy the unlimited ambition for fundraising, instead of - for example - traffic lights without sense that nobody respects, so they can "Buy" and "Buy" is understood?? Instead of repairing and maintaining what already is.

  • Always inhabited by artists, families with dogs, children, runners and others. Beautiful year round with beautiful monuments and a source rather than famous.
