The City's Historic Square

The center of Buenos Aires - both historically and politically - this plaza is where the seconding founding of the city of 1580 occurred, where the revolution of May 1810 began and the forum for political demonstrations for decades. Just as this city has been the capital of the nation, the plaza has been the focus of the city. Don't worry, though: This is not some area where you'll find free-for-all riots. Instead, it is an elegant plaza surrounded by such landmarks as the Cabilo, the Metropolitan Cathedral (where Pope Francis celebrated mass for more than 20 years) and the Casa Rosada, the seat of the national government of Argentina. Be sure to take time to admire the beautiful May Pyramid (actually an Egyptian-like stele) that commemorates the 1810 revolution.
