Buenos Aires’ main square is called the Plaza de Mayo. This square has become inextricably linked with Argentinian History. Some of the most striking events in the political history of Argentina have happened in this place. The central Plaza of Buenos Aires is hence a place of great heritage and it is as historic as it is pretty.
The Plaza de Mayo is also special due to its vicinity with many of the land marks of Buenos Aires. The famous streets of Yrigoyen, Rivadavia, Balcarce and Bolivar encase it. The city council, or the Cabilido can be found here along with the building of the chief executive agency of Buenos Aires called the Casa Rozada. Among the many other interesting things to see here are the equestrian monument and the May Pyramid. Also on this street are Hacienda Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Buenos Aires, along with the well-known street named the Diagonal Norte. Just a walk down this place will expose you to a plethora of events and monuments and provide an amazing insight into the cultural heritage of Buenos Aires.

Amazing architecture, wide open space and historically and culturally rich. Stroll around to see workers, commuters and tourists all enjoying the weather and the view. The subway (Subte) takes you right down there (the D line stops at Cathedral station which is the end of the line) so you can't miss your stop. The locals are friendly and you can sit there with a sandwich and a drink and watch a little bit of a different world go past you...
Beautiful and historical location to visit and learn more about the history of this location. Seeing people repaint make it seems peoples never forget. A great place to go in the morning or evening! Take a good Cortado near the location. Beautiful place and great location!
Beautiful architecture and a nice city square. A few street vendors selling various items. Nice place for photos and a sit and relax.
Good place to visit. Just one time. Try visit in the afternoon when the sun will more weak, cause in the morning the sun light is extremely bright and the pictures aren’t good.
Large square with a beautiful garden. The giant flag is good to take great pictures and the pink house is a great building
