A main connection between the Casa Rosada and the Congresso. During the summer, the city government sometimes plans cultural events along parts of this avenue.

A Nice walk to the main squares at both ends of the avenue. Full of restaurants and other shops. Nothing special, but a good way to walk off lunch or dinner.

This Street goes right to the Government Buildings and as I found out, a prime target for political demonstrations.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
