Local Area

Buenos Aires is not only Argentina’s capital, it is also the largest cosmopolitan city in Latin America.

The city began as a settlement on the banks of the widest river in the world, the Rio de la Plata—or as the Spanish conquistadors called it, the “Fresh Water Sea”. Today, it is a hub of the continent’s commercial, financial, cultural, and entertainment industries.

An ever-developing metropolis, visitors find cultures from all over the world along with designer boutiques, fine restaurants, museums, cultural centers, modern theaters, and cinemas. Charming avenues with names like Santa Fe, Alvear, and Corrientes populate the city, as do beautiful urban parks in the Palermo neighborhood and artistic sites like Las Nereidas: the famous Lola Mora sculpture in the riverside area Puerto Madero.

The Colón Theater and National Museum of Fine Arts are just a few of the establishments that reflect the city’s cultural wealth, which is also seen in Buenos Aires’ many diverse barrios, or neighborhoods. It was here that Argentina’s famous tango evolved, and its urban music is still one of the city’s distinguishing characteristics.
