The Obelisco is a well-known landmark of Buenos Aires. It is built at the junction of the Corrientes Avenue and the Avenido 9 de Julio.

The Obelisco commemorated the completion of 400 years of the foundation of the city. Over the decades, the adjoining surroundings of the monument were restored, reconstructed and modified through the Governmental city modification project named the Punto Obelisco. The project introduced an extensive laying of LED lighting and signaling schemes, accompanied by highlighting and illuminating the monument and its premises. The Obelisk has thus been emphasized and decorated making it an exquisite sight at night. The obelisk was originally made of white stone. It was later repainted and is now of a grayish color that was much appreciated by the people. The Obelisk has also been frequently used for the representation of international issues as well as for the celebration of festivals. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Buenos Aires itinerary 7 days.
