Passionate about knowledge and human relationships, History, Politics, Philosophy, Art and Gastronomy. I love sharing my knowledge and exchanging experiences with people. I am a History Professor, Graduate in Journalism, Announcer and some other things... I believe that opening your eyes to reality, going where human activity stands out, where the noises of life can be heard, is the best formula to develop a thought. plural and multicultural that contains a message of peace and harmony. The best place to learn, know and understand reality is reality itself, the only truth, which is on the street beating the life of the people. I enjoy sharing a flexible and creative environment in which I can develop all my knowledge, which gives me the opportunity to learn and absorb experiences, as well as to create relationships, meet new people and develop new bonds.

Tour description

The times of the conquest of America run. Don Pedro de Mendoza has obtained authorization from the king to found a city on the edge of the world.
"Around the ragged palisade that crowns the plateau facing the river, the bonfires of the Indians crackle day and night."
It is 1536, Buenos Aires was born for the first time.
From Parque Lezama to the Church of San Ignacio de Loyola, the city unfolds to us like an old parchment that reveals its mysteries to us.
Conquistadors, indigenous people, Africans, patriots, immigrants... are the stars of this story.
On our tour we will see emblematic places and monuments.

We will be able to enter some of these places for free as long as they are open.

We will learn and have fun on the very stage of history. They will be able to take pictures and discover hidden secrets in the streets of the oldest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.

Moving through the irregular cobblestones will bring us sounds and textures from a time when love, politics and business were carried out slowly in a large timeless village.
