Don't forget to stop for a coffee or other sort of beverage at the 1930s grand Café Tortoni - elegant but pricey, and have a stroll through the park at the top of the boulevard to watch the fountains and see the magnificent Congress building.

Main street from Plaza de Mayo to Plaza del Congreso, with some nice sights along the way like Palacio Barolo. Lots of restaurants and lots of graffiti.

Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,

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
