Buenos Aires – Places you should visit.

The Obelisk…

… of Buenos Aires is 221 feet (67m) high, was started on 20 of March 1936 and finished on 23 of May 1963 and is pretty similar to the Washington Monument which is 555 feet (169m) high, started in 1848 and took to finish 36 years!!!

Avenida 9 de Julio (July 9 Avenue)…

… is known as the widest avenue in the world (around 145m). It also is home to the Obelisk, which easily fits in the middle. There are six lanes of traffic in each direction, with three long islands separating the two directions of traffic from each other, as well as from the two other two-lane avenues bordering the sidewalks. It takes pedestrians quite a while to cross it, requiring waiting at 2 or 3 red lights.

Floralis Genérica…

 is a sculpture made of steel and aluminum located in Plaza de las Naciones Unidas, Avenida Figueroa Alcorta, Buenos Aires, a gift to the city by the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano. Catalano once said that the flower “is a synthesis of all the flowers and, at the same time, a hope reborn every day at opening.” It was created in 2002. The sculpture was designed to move, closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning.

It is 23m high and with Pedal open 32m (diameter)

Frank´s Bar

Yes, you will need a password to get in and yes, you need to go to a phone box to tap in a four-digit code, but, yes, it’s totally worth it! Great drinks coupled with a vibrant atmosphere make this an absolute must in Buenos Aires!
