Anchored by the Pink House, The Cathedral and the Museum, the Plaza is a vibrant and really lively place to visit. You can just sit in the middle and observe the world go by. Nice place to break your visit to BA.

I love visiting Plaza de Mayo for its historic significance, proximity to other notable places such as the Casa Rosada, the National Cathedral, and the Cabildo. It can also be an exciting location to watch the vocal Portenos protest.

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
