Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Mercado de San Telmo, Defensa 963, Buenos Aires Argentina

It is a large indoor market that is located in the San Telmo neighborhood. Although it preserves old shops selling vegetables and meat, today it is a tourist place and antique dealers abound. The old stalls "in the neighborhood" that have been preserved for several decades coexist with antique dealers, more recent and related as the tourist boom in San Telmo.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Puente de la Mujer, Porto Madero, Buenos Aires Argentina

The Puente de la Mujer, one of the emblems of the Puerto Madero neighborhood, is the first work in Latin America by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and represents another example of the City permanently seeking to position itself at the forefront of art and architecture in the entire region. It is a revolving pedestrian bridge with one of the largest turning mechanisms in the world, designed to allow the passage of sailing vessels that navigate the docks of Puerto Madero. The work, made in Spain and donated to the City by a private individual, represents the image of a couple dancing tango, where the white pole symbolizes the man and the curved silhouette of the bridge is the woman.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Casa Rosada, Calle Balcarce 50, Buenos Aires C1064AAB Argentina

It is a palace located in front of the Plaza de Mayo that functions as the seat of the National Government. This imposing pink building occupies the site where the Fort of Buenos Aires was erected in 1580. It was the residence of Spanish viceroys and then housed, with some reforms, the authorities of the successive national governments. The current building is the product of the merger of two previous constructions: the presidential headquarters and the Palacio de Correos (on the corner of Hipólito Yrigoyen and Balcarce).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Catedral, Buenos Aires, C1004 Buenos Aires, Argentina

It is the main seat of the Catholic Church of Argentina. In addition to being located in a key area of the City of Buenos Aires, it has a long history of disappointments in its construction. The current building is the sixth construction that has been carried out in this place since the second foundation of the City of Buenos Aires. Its final structure is neoclassical and has a profile rarely used in cathedrals, giving it a closer resemblance to a Greek temple than to the classic Catholic building.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Rosedal De Palermo, Avenida Infanta Isabel, Buenos Aires C1425CHA Argentina

Within the Parque 3 de Febrero, in Palermo, is the Rosedal, with a collection of more than 18, 000 roses and a lake that surrounds it. It occupies a space that belonged to the fifth of Juan Manuel de Rosas, until it was defeated on February 3, 1852 in the Battle of Caseros. The work began with the landscaper Carlos Thays, the same one who built the Botanical Garden, Avellaneda Park and Lezama Park, among others. Then his disciple Benito Carrasco finished it in 1914.

Every July when the pruning season begins, residents and tourists approach gardeners to receive flowers or cuttings from which new species can reproduce. In this way, in winter the roses bloom healthy and strong to reach the maximum development point in October.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Cementerio de la Recoleta, Junin 1760, Buenos Aires C1113 Argentina

It is located in the exclusive Recoleta neighborhood, which owes its name to the fact that there was the convent of the Recoletos monks, to which the neighboring Basilica Nuestra Señora del Pilar also belonged (the cemetery was built in the old garden of the monks ).

It is the most visited in the city, for its numerous and imposing mausoleums and vaults, belonging to many of the main protagonists of Argentine history, such as that of Eva Perón (Evita), one of the most popular tombs. Likewise, it is worth a visit for its architectural value, since it is a sample of the times when the country was an emerging economic power and the main families of the city competed to build splendid pantheons. Many of the vaults and mausoleums are the work of important architects and are adorned with marbles and sculptures; more than 90 vaults have been declared a National Historic Monument.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: El Ateneo Grand Splendid, Avenida Santa Fe 1860, Buenos Aires C1123AAN Argentina

The Athenaeum Grand Splendid was chosen by the British newspaper The Guardian as the second largest bookstore in the world. Built on the former Grand Splendid movie theater in the Recoleta neighborhood, it retains its former splendor and elegance, with the frescoed cupola, original railings, and intact decor. On the old stage - with the velvet curtain ajar - there is a bar that invites you to sit book in hand. You can also take advantage of the armchairs that are on both sides of the main room or be located in the exclusive boxes that work as small reading rooms. In the basement there is a sector dedicated to children's books, and the upper floor is dedicated to samples and exhibitions.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Floralis Generica, Av Pres Figueroa Alcorta, Buenos Aires 2301 Argentina

This imposing 20-meter-high sculpture that dominates the United Nations square was donated to the City of Buenos Aires by its author, the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano. It is made of stainless steel and aluminum and weighs 18 tons. It is the first sculpture in movement controlled by a hydraulic system and photoelectric cells.

The work was inaugurated on April 13, 2002. Its name, "Floralis Generica", is a tribute to all the flowers. It is about the projection of a dream of its creator, that of building a large-scale structure that reflects the dynamism of our time.
