Impressive square, famous buildings (the biggest one, obviously, is the Congress Palace) around and equally famous sculptures. Mainly one of the three originals of The Thinker, by Auguste Rodin. The park invite you to a nice walk...and a lot of locals are walking their dogs!

The Congress Square is amazing, and apart from all the beauty you will also see lots of homeless people sleeping around on the grass, it's very sad to see it. And another prove that Argentina it's getting poor by the time.
