  • The plaza is currently undergoing a major renovation which basically has the entire plaza closed. There are no clear views of the pink house due to the construction fencing. Loks like it will be awhile before you will be able to stroll there again.

  • This was amazing. Too learn about the history in Argentina was life changing. You must visit Plaza de Mayo!

  • See visited her while on a bike tour in Buenos Aires. It’s a unique spot with a history that was very interesting to learn about. Definitely a must when in the city.

  • An interesting spot at the heart of government and the heart of the city itself. Admire the Casa Rosada, the office of the President, and see what political groups are gathering on the square. Often the scene of mass protests but common sense should dictate when to stay away.

  • It's a really interesting place. There you will find the Pink House and a lot of stories. It's in the centre and close to lots of other attractions. Must visit when in Buenos Aires.
