On the way to the Casa Rosada you can stroll, watch the people and enjoy a coffee in dozens of coffee shops. Direct access via Subway makes it even more convenient.

We walked along here as part of the Free Tours by Foot. There is supposed to be a building with great views. There was an interesting mural 1/2 way down.

I'm not sure what makes this eligible for a Certificate of Excellence, especially given its relative low ranking as compared to other BA attractions. It's a nice looking street but it's still a city street lined with those types of shops and offices that one...More

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

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
