Best places to see in Argentina

Plaza de Mayo Square
Landmarks
Ghosts of Argentina’s turbulent history haunt Plaza de Mayo. The pink palace of Casa Rosada is the president’s official residence. It has witnessed some of the country’s most seismic events, including riots, rallies and revolutions. Gaze up at the balconies and picture Eva Perón giving her famous speech to the nation (or Madonna singing ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’).

Corrientes Avenue
Popular areas
Ever heard of the city that never sleeps? Well this is the street that never sleeps. Even at stupid o’ clock chattering theatre-goers queue in the glow of twinkling venues. By day, see if you can find a hidden gem among the second-hand books or CDs before stopping off for a juicy slab of pizza, BA-style. Just make sure that you keep an eye out for pickpockets!
Accommodation near Corrientes Avenue
9 de Julio Avenue
Landmarks
Never has crossing the street been such an ordeal! In order to negotiate the world’s widest avenue you need to hurry across a full 18 lanes of chaotic traffic. This monster boulevard was built as Buenos Aires’ answer to the Champs Elysées, and while it may not quite have the je ne sais quoi of its Parisian counterpart, it more than makes up for it in sheer jaw-dropping scale.

San Telmo Antique Market
Shopping areas
Go hunting for diamonds in the rough. This flea market is a repository of relics from a faded past. There’s a pleasing order to the stands, where you’ll find hundreds of dolls, gloves, magazines or candelabras stacked together. Sharpen your haggling skills at this one-stop souvenir shop or simply wander and admire humanity’s accumulated trinkets.

The Obelisk of Buenos Aires
Monuments
This is one needle you won’t have trouble finding – mainly because it’s slap-bang in the middle of the city’s main avenue. Pointing to the heavens like a primordial monolith, it’s a rallying point for porteño crowds. Time your visit right and you’ll see masses swarming round the obelisk to sing hymns, wave placards or whoop deliriously at football victories.
Accommodation near The Obelisk of Buenos Aires
Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires MALBA
Galleries
Latin America is a complex place with a complex past – so imagine what its modern art looks like. At MALBA, you have the chance to wander through the Latin subconscious, contemplating all aspects of the continent’s post-colonial hangover. There are star turns too: a Frida Kahlo self-portrait and a family scene with Fernando Botero’s unmistakable bulbous figures.
