About the tour

Join us and discover the origins, the history and the present of the Argentinian capital on our Free Historical Center Tour of Buenos Aires. Enjoy the few examples which are left of the colonial hispanic architecture and understand through the buildings constructed after the independence the strong determination of the ruling classes of the 19th century to turn Buenos Aires into a modern European capital in South America.

Hear at May Square , the main square during the Spanish colonial times, the account of the insurrection which took place right there, in which a group of citizens made the most of the power vacuum in Spain, due to the napoleonic invasion, to declare independence and set the foundations for a new republic: Argentina. Hear too how after 6 long years of war, once independence was fully achieved, they found themselves in a period of Civil Wars that would last nearly four decades.
