Plaza De Mayo - Review

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

  • Great place to visit on a sunny day. Some days have demonstrations; it's part of the atmosphere. No violence happens here, just discussions of public welfare. The scenery is fantastic with many people eating lunch outside.

  • A central plaza in Buenos Aires and a site of big cultural and historic significance. It is often the site of protests, but the ones I saw were all peaceful (if somewhat noisy). The May Pyramid statue is prominently situated, and several important government buildings surround the plaza.

  • Gorgeous public area. However, be aware that there are scheduled protests happening on weekdays, which may block views and paths. Ideally, less people are out on Sundays.

  • You can access the plaza from the east/sea side as it is surrounded by government buildings and a fence. I suggest entering via side streets and from the west. Perfect for photos and that is about it

  • Very pretty and felt really safe. A must see in Buenos Aires for the historical and cultural importance. Close to other touristy things so easy to see on the way to something else!
