Nice end to a long walk

We did a long walk from Florida Street to la Boca and then back around to Plaza del Mayo where this statue is located. Plenty of tourists taking photos, including us!

Free speech tramps a monument in my book any day of the week, but all of the barriers set up here to facilitate or whatever the protesters make this a poor attraction. Had there been any protesters I would be singing a different song.

Sometimes there are couples of Tango dancer. You can take photo with them with a "big" tip. For male tourist,sexy Tango lady accompanies. For female tourist,handsome Tango gentleman accompanies. It maybe become one of your good memories.

This pyramid sculpture is situated in the plaza de mayo across the fence from the casa rosada: the fence is supposed to keep protestors away from casa rosada, & there are at least 4 police transport vehicles by the casa. They used tho have armored personnel carriers & machine guns. Anyway it is worth going to the 8th of May... More

At this point you will be able to visit the Casa Rosada (President´s Working place), Plaza de Mayo (better known through the Evita films, balcony included), Cabildo (opposite side of the Casa Rosada), when the declaration of independence was held, and the Cathedral (where General San Martín is buried). Very close by foot of other places like Puerto Madero. I... More

May Square is always full of people camping there, marching, making dirty stuff, even on week-ends. Some parts of the square are fenced due to manifestations.Just a bus sightseeing around the square is enough. It's a pity that the main historic site of the city is spoilt.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
