Overview Of The Port Of Buenos Aires

About Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. It is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the south-eastern coast of the South American continent.

Free guided tours of various neighbourhoods are offered by the tourist offices.

Hailing street cabs is not recommended. To avoid problems, always use radio taxis that are called in advance by hotels, shops or restaurants.

Calle Florida, a major tourist attraction and a pedestrian-only street, bustles with shoppers, vendors and office workers because of its proximity to the financial district. In the evening, street performers flock to the area.

Recoleta area is home to art museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Argentina's largest museum.

Plaza de Mayo - the city's stately historic centre includes the Metropolitan Cathedral, dating back to the 18th century, Casa Rosada, the pink palace where Eva Peron addressed adoring crowds from the balcony and May Pyramid, guarded by tall palm trees in the centre of the square, commemorates the 1810 revolution.

Beyond Plaza de Mayo, are the colourful, older working-class neighbourhoods of San Telmo and La Boca. Buenos Aires is famous for tango and small, intimate tango bars can be found throughout these districts.

Museums include The National Museum of Decorative Arts and the National History Museum.

Colon Theatre is one of the most opulent opera houses in the world.

Over 8,000 species of plants from throughout South America can be found at the botanical garden in Palermo. It adjoins the Buenos Aires zoo, known for its white tigers. Also adjacent is the Tres de Febrero Park, 1,000 acres with rose and Japanese gardens, lakes and streams.

Argentines are known for their high protein diet, particularly beef and empanadas. Grilled meat from the barbecue is a staple, with steak and beef ribs especially common. Chorizo (pork sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), chinchulines (chitterlings) and mollejas (sweetbread) are also eaten.
