The current Plaza was formed back in 1884 after the demolition of a building which separated two other plazas, the Plaza de la Victoria and the Plaza 25 de Mayo, which were subsequently merged to form the current Plaza. The origins of the Plaza though...More

A place to stop and snap but at present (December 2017) it is under such heavy construction that it is virtually a walkway through a construction site. Come for the historic significance of the spot: it is the oldest public square in the city and...More

It is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the sun, when it is open... The park is often closed for demonstrations or events. Dont be surprised if it closed when you visit.

The Plaza has a big part in Argentina's history, and could be way more interesting if they focused more on explaining that history (plaques, signs etc.). Most of the plaza was barricaded off or under construction when we visited.

The plaza gets really busy in the early evenings (presumably when the locals get off work?), so it's a fun place for people-watching. Lots of interesting and beautiful architecture surrounding the plaza as well.

Nice plaza with view of the pink house. If you go at the right time of day you can see the changing of the guards which was impressive.

Montserrat
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
