Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina and a large, sprawling metropolis that is home to over 12 million people. It is, unsurprisingly, the largest city in Argentina, but it is also covers a large area forming the second-largest metropolitan city in South America, after Sao Paulo in Brazil. Influenced by early European settlers (largely from Italy) it is often referred to as the “Paris of South America” due to its nightlife and historically-elegant buildings. The city is located on the southern bank of the Rio de la Plata (or River Plate) delta.

 

Since the beginning of the 20th century Buenos Aires has undergone continual re-development resulting in the loss of many of its original and beautiful buildings of importance. However, there are still some elegant examples of architecture from the early 1900s particularly from the affluent period between the 1920's and 30's, when Argentina as a world economic power. Like Santiago, the city centre has maintained its original lay out since its foundation and more recently the old dock area has been completely re-developed into a spacious, modern, commercial sector of hotels, offices and fashionable restaurants.

 

Buenos Aires is culturally rich and home to the Teatro Colon – an internationally-rated opera house as well as a number of symphony orchestras and choirs. There are a number of museums offering exhibits of varying types: fine arts, decorative arts, modern arts and even sacred art; and homes of recognized cultural icons that have been preserved for public viewing. There are hundreds of book stores and cultural associations and the city has the largest concentration of working theatres in South America, in which many a Tango show is performed.

 

Among the attractions that Buenos Aires has to offer are the football matches at the famous Boca Stadium, Tango shows, city cultural tours and out-of-city excursions to any number of estancias. For the visitor, one particular location of interest in Buenos Aires is: San Telmo (cobblestone streets, colonial buildings, street performers and tango dancers). One of the more affluent areas is that of Recoleta where there are up-market boutique stores, top hotels and restaurants.
