I am 31 years old. I have been living in the San Telmo neighborhood in Buenos Aires for 7 years, a historic area visited by tourists from all over the world. I am a political scientist, writer and teacher. I love to know places and I am a lover of the history and the details of the social processes that make up the urban landscape. Buenos Aires, like none, is plagued by that history that is lived at every step. We must activate that sixth sense to capture the past that materializes in the present through streets, houses, trees, buildings and squares. For all this, I want to be your guide in la "Reina de la Plata". Avanti!

About the tour

The youngest neighborhood in Buenos Aires reveals its mysteries of old port and luxury skyscrapers. The highest towers in the country on the foundations of a port abandoned for almost a century are erected on land gained from the Río de la Plata. A young and wealthy neighborhood, residential, with luxury hotels and yachting clubs, with imposing urban planning, steps from Plaza de Mayo.

We will witness the transformation of the area, from the port of Buenos Aires that went for some years to the grandiloquence of luxury and current comfort, through the abandonment of decades and the real estate boom of the 90s, vitiated by negotiated and corruption . The waterfront, which was a popular summer resort and Sunday promenade, is now a splendid viewpoint of the Costanera Sur ecological reserve, a large area of native vegetation and fauna generated by sediments that the river itself drags.

We will visit places such as the Women's Bridge, the Sarmiento Frigate, Las Nereidas Monumental Fountain (from Lola Mora), Costanera Sur, the Faena Hotel, the Alvear Tower (highest point in the city), and the Paseo de Glory, among others.
