A Quick Guide to Buenos Aires

  • Plaza de Mayo: As the city centre of Buenos Aires, the Plaza de Mayo has played host to several important events in Argentinian history. A political hub, a financial centre, and a social nexus, the square is always teeming with locals and tourists alike. The Plaza de Mayo is a place that has seen some of the largest demonstrations of jubilant joy or vehement anger that the world has ever expressed. It is for this reason that it has earned its place in history as one of the most important squares in the world. One needs to be physically present at the square itself to feel the history seep into every pore.
  • Casa Rosada: Taking the pride of place within the Plaza de Mayo, the Casa Rosado is the seat of the Argentine national government and the presidential office. Within the four salmon pink walls of this emblematic building, Juan and Eva Peron addressed the masses and also served as the site to several integral events within Argentinian politics. Visitors are offered the chance to tour the mansion and in-house museum which contains numerous objects in relation to former presidents of Argentina. There have been several rumors to explain the bizarre color of the building. Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, the seventh president of Argentina, explained that the walls were painted pink to diffuse political tensions by combining the colors of the main political parties. However, another popular explanation was that the exterior was painted with cows’ blood as an alternative to paint, due to its tendency to peel in the humidity. Take a trip to Casa Rosado and you may find out the correct explanation to this color conundrum for yourself.
  • El Ateneo Grand Splendid: A former theatre, this stunning bookstore was named “the second most beautiful bookstore in the world” by The Guardian in 2008. Since then, this splendid literary palace has certainly lived up to its name and was named “the most beautiful bookstore in the world” by National Geographic in 2019. El Ateneo Grand Splendid opens its doors to one million visitors every year and retains the majesty of its old purpose. With retained theatre boxes that now double as reading rooms and a beautiful café that used to be the stage, the bookstore has not let go of the rich cultural heritage that came before it. The grand ceiling, ornate carvings, crimson stage curtains, and auditorium lighting are also still intact. For any literary lovers, El Ateneo Grand Splendid should be a must-see on your Argentinian itinerary.
