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.

The park was closed, but looks very beautiful and pleasant. Check the opening days and hours before visiting; not very far from aeroparque airport

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...

Very nicely done remembrance park. This used to be part of the river than the government sent the remains of the building and started to fill in the area until the park was built. So you are actually standing on the grounds but in reality on what used to be remains of the buildings.. Very interesting to take it all... More

It is good to see Argentina coming to grips with its brutal dictatorial past. The monument acknowledges and pays tribute to those who paid the ultimate price. Very moving.

Staying in Belgrano

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgrano
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.
