This avenue is an integral part of the history of the city and also serves as a landmark of the numerous waves of immigrants that fled into Buenos Aires in past centuries, and also the starting point of Congress Square, where the Government house ('Pink House') is located. Another place I found of particular interest was Puerto Madero, which was once a section of old docks and warehouses but has recently been renovated into modern offices, lavish restaurants, cinemas, a remarkable exhibition centre and a floating casino. The Eiffel Tower of Argentina Another site of interest, which is very hard not to notice is the Obelisk, erected to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Buenos Aires, and is a common symbol of the city, the Eiffel Tower of Argentina you could say. There are just as many things to get up to at night in Buenos Aires. Porte?os eat extravagantly and party hard ? sleep is for the dead. A tango show is always a very popular option; perhaps cliched but unarguably impressive. There are many places one can watch the tango, especially in the tango district, San Telmo. Many tango clubs include a dinner along with the show. Porte?os don?t usually eat before 10pm at both restaurants and at home. Watch out for an immense contrast in price from one eatery to the next, which is not always apparent in the way the restaurant or cafe presents itself. Often a rather exclusive looking spot is cheaper than a more inexpensive looking one, and vice versa. One can avoid making the wrong decision by perusing the prices on the menu which nearly always stands prominently outside or in the window of the establishment. Argentina is famous for the quality of its meat, so try not pass it up. A very popular meal is Parrillada, a mixed grill of steak, intestines, kidneys and blood sausage. This meal is accompanied by chimichurri, a delighfully sweet marinade, the recipe of which, despite my efforts, no Porte?o would disclose. Whilst having a distinctly South American flavour, Buenos Aires boasts the organisation and conveniences of the First World. It is a great holiday destination and has something to offer everyone. I recommend any holidaymaker put it on their to-do list without question ? you will not be disappointed at this South American gem of a city.
