About the tour
WHAT IS EARTH WATER HISTORY AND ART: PUERTO MADERO + ECOLOGICAL RESERVE?
Puerto Madero is the neighborhood where the modernism of glazed skyscrapers is intertwined with lush nature. It is where they arrived by boat and immigrants from all over the world were housed, between cranes and old warehouses. It is where fabulous frigates, bridges and monuments coexist with museums full of history and art; the place where old dikes and new parks make their way through the streets full of tributes to the women who made the country great. Puerto Madero and its Ecological Reserve is the place where the breeze of the widest river in the world gives us unique views and unforgettable evenings.
WHERE IS EARTH WATER HISTORY AND ART: PUERTO MADERO + ECOLOGICAL RESERVE?
We start at the old Hotel de los Immigrantes, to see how they arrived and lived their first days in Argentina, and we went up to its modern glazed viewpoint to contemplate a spectacular panoramic view of the Río de la Plata. We cross the dike of the sailboats, between gigantic sculptures of sailors, taxi drivers, flowers and even the nail monument! We visited the incredible German brewery Munich of 1927. We walked through huge parks to discover the ride of the cartoon and Street Art in 3D! We follow the route between old cranes, power plants and recycled flour mills that tell us their stories and give way to the imposing Puente de la Mujer.
We also stroll along the Costanera Sur, the popular spa of the early twentieth century, to enjoy, among other things, the Paseo de la Gloria, sculptures of the most prominent Argentine athletes in history, such as Fangio, Ginobili, Sabatini and Messi. And when it seems that everything ends ... the monumental Fountain of the Nereids, by Lola Mora, tempts us to dive into the Museum of Calcos de la Cárcova, a place anchored at all times, with reproductions taken of the original molds of the sculptures more world famous!
The golden brooch (if the weather allows it): a relaxed walk through the Ecological Reserve to explore its hundreds of species of birds and plants, contemplate the city from a different point of view, and take some rich mates by the river . Do you have much to think to join?
