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

  • I came to see this square because of its historical significance. Unfortunately the square was closed for refurbishment and was surrounded by barriers. It was a busy area and there were police directing pedestrians. However the surrounding buildings like Casa Rosada are interesting.

  • A beautiful park in the centre of Buenos Aires, the heart of the town and political life. Since the very beginning this square witnessed debates on different topics that decided the future of the entire country. In the place it is possible to visit the old Cathedral, the Cabildo, the ‘Pink House,’ and near it the legislature of Buenos Aires. Unfortunately it has a fence not to let striker approach the pink house or create bugger problems. Near the square it is possible to find places to eat, walk, visit or take a rest.

  • Well it is one of the most important Plazas in Buenos Aires, where you can find La Casa Rosada, that is like the HQ of the President. It is very very beautiful, one of the "must go" places in Buenos Aires.

  • I rate it 4 stars because it is interesting to see. Unfortunately they were doing construction to the plaza the whole week I was in town, cant wait to see it again when it's done. There are some small trinket shops around here, and within walking distance to Florida street from here.

  • Is one of the most emblematic places of BA. So intense. You shouldn't miss it if you visit Buenos Aires. Sadly now is all sorrounded with fences.
