Quality Verified Registered on July 26, 2022

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

Retiro went from being a point far from the city center and gateway to the immigration wave at the end of the 19th century to exhibiting the contrast of a hub of work and communications and an elegant setting for the daily life of the Creole aristocracy.
Retiro is one of the most elegant neighborhoods, witness and protagonist of important events in the life of Buenos Aires with its dual bourgeois and working personality.
Its wide squares, its stately residences, its luxury hotels and its tall office buildings make up a mosaic where the past and the present converge.
