Itinerary

The May Square is located in the Porteño Downtown, neighborhood of Monserrat, in the area where the foundation of Buenos Aires took place. The Plaza de Mayo is the most important and oldest public square of the city. The name of this square commemorates the Revolution of May 25, 1810, date in which the citizens gathered around to expel the Viceroy and form a creole government. Since then, the Square has been a silent witness to the most important political and social events in the country.

The Metropolitan Cathedral of Buenos Aires, can be found in the San Nicolas neighborhood, just in front of the Plaza de Mayo and a few steps from the Casa Rosada. The construction of this famous temple began in the seventeenth century and just ended at the beginning of the 20th century. However, in the end, there is no doubt that the current one, is an ideal temple to be the main house of God in Argentina. As an interesting fact, it is that this was precisely the place where today Pope Francis, developed many years of his life and work.

In front of the Plaza de Mayo, to the west, between Avenida de Mayo and Diagonal Sur, or General Roca Street, is the Cabildo. This historic building was created in colonial times, as the seat of government that represented the Crown, imitating the institutions of the Metropolis.

The Avenida de Mayo preserves all the splendor of the past, showing the whole world the energetic and cosmopolitan character of the city. Its buildings preserve a striking mix of facades with Art Nouveau, Belle Époque and Art Déco styles, which make up a complete sample of architecture. The Barolo Palace and the Real Estate Building are the two most important examples of its greatness. Avenida de Mayo has been and is one of the most important avenues of the city, so it is usually the scene of most of the demonstrations and celebrations of Buenos Aires citizens.
