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.

Plaza De Mayo is one of the main tourist attractions to visit and should definitely feature in your Buenos Aires Itinerary 5 Days.

Plaza De Mayo, Buenos Aires Reviews - Write a Review

  • The plaza is surrounded by beautiful historic buildings and is quite a peaceful place to take a stroll if there is not some sort of protest happening. I visited both on a quiet afternoon and a day of protest and both experinces were eye-opening. Be cautious of the crowds if there is a protest but don't be too worried to enjoy yourself - there will likely be vendors selling beer on the street so you can sit back and watch.0

  • Allways something going on in this site. Siempre pasa acontece algo en este lugar. En este caso la marcha 26 GLTTBQ noviembre 2017.👍🏽

  • Beautiful square with so many different historical buildings around. The only problem is that the nice square is a little bit ruined by the chain fences which I believe are up for the protesters that protest every Thursday. Great place for photographs

  • It´s a nice place to have lunch on sunny days, maybe have a walk at noon to warm, or just stay on the grass. Also is an historical landmark from Argentina: General Manuel Belgrano statue, Malvinas War Monument.

  • Next to the Pink House and right downtown its a great place to visit; especially to visit the Great San Martin who is laid to rest here!
