Nice Architecture to Capitol Bldg.

Walking from Av 9 de Julio to Congresso was no problemo for this couple mid-day. The building architecture is quite nice and the street tree-lined.

Just an other main street in an other large city. Bustling, noisy and perfumed with the exhaust gas from never ending traffic. The sidewalks could use some TLC, the are in dire need of repair- look down while walking.

Tree lined avenue running to the Cathedral and pink house. Some shops and restaurants but not as many as other close by streets.

A great avenue to leisurely wander down and admire. Plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and other places of interest. Quite busy with pedestrians. Great architecture in the buildings lining both sides of the avenue. BA is certainly a fantastic city to explore on foot.

Of course you will walk down this street- it is the happenin' place in BA! I was here for 4 days, and saw this street transform each day. One day there is a farmers market, another day a Brazilian festival. There was a major Zumba dance party, and people out partying all day and night long. Without the festivities, the... More

Walked down Avenida de Mayo on our way to Plaza de Mayo (well worth a visit). The street is a busy thoroughfare with shops and eateries and is a pleasant rather than spectacular walk.

This avenue leads to - La casa rosada at one end and Plaza congreso at the other end. There are lots of cafes and restaurants along avenida de Mayo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Occasionally you will see people voicing their opinion regarding the country's politics. Other times you will see multi-cultural festivals and street markets and there are some shops.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
