This memorial, to the thousands of Argentine citizens that lost their lives in the 1970"s and 80's at the hand of the government, is set in a peaceful and moving setting. We visited this site with a knowledgable guide who made it come alive. I would strongly encourage visiting with someone who knows the history.

Very interesting memorial to the citizens of Buenos Aires who disappeared during the sketchy political past of the country. I would recommend going with someone who knows the history and can explain it very well.

This is a monument to the victims of all people desappered around the years of State's terrorism (1976-83) in Argentina, whose names appear in 4 walls with their age. Impressive demonstration of how a few "motherland saviours" (mainly military with some civil support) can massacre 30,000 of their citizens in the name of a political cause. All the horror and...

This park, located near the mouth of the River Plate and not far from one Buenos Aires' airports, is a somber reminded of Argentina's military dictatorship's human costs. The wall containing the names of the disappeared is a moving tribute, and the small museum nearby has other artifacts from that time. There is also currently (September 2016) a video room... More

The last military and civic dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983) left 30000 disappeared and 500 children were born in the different clandestine detention centers. This horror NEVER MORE can be repeated. This place is fundamental to remember what happened. It is a very peace-full place.

A beautiful park alongside the Rio de la Plata is the center for the memorial for those who were victims of the Dictatorships (1976-84) in Argentina. The park has also sculptures created by young artists and a museum with temporary exhibitions.

Until we visited Parque de la Memoria we really knew little about the history of the terrorism that Argentina experienced. The wall has names of people - mostly young - who disappeared and you can see by the years which were worse and finally when it stopped. It's a nice park as well on the water. We went with a...

This park is memorial site in memory of the so called dirty war in which more than 30,000 people were killed or disappeared. in a military coup. This momentum is an interesting place to visit.

Staying in Belgrano

Neighbourhood Profile
As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires, Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour and scent emanate from every corner, particularly during the Chinese New Year when they spill over to surrounding areas. But if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, the residential quarter of Belgrano is the perfect destination. This section of town features some of the most magnificent mansions in the city, spread out on cobbled streets lined by tall, majestic trees: a true feast for the eyes.
