Walking in Buenos Aires in March this year, I decided to go on the tour of the United Nations Plaza, as well as the Avenida Figueroa Alcorta and Austria, and to go and see this gigantic Floralis Generic, a metal sculpture that is located on a four acre park that is surrounded by many trees and is situated on a pond that protects it. According to the author it depicts flowers worldwide. It is surprising both because it opens at 10am, and due to its slow and deliberate closure in subsequent times up to sundown and its color varies with the chang ine the position of the sun. The inside is particularly impressive, mostly the reddish hue that comes when it closes.
This library is in the Santa Fe Avenue near the corner of Avenida De Callao in the heart of Buenos Aires. It was once the old movie theater and then the Grand Splendid Bookseller recycled it and did so by retaining its structure, the stage, the boxes and the beautiful dome.
Buenos Aires' Puerto Madero area is where they are currently building the tallest buildings in the city. Puerto Madero is one of the newest and most cutting-edge neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, considered to be particularly modern and exclusive.
The Barges of the Fishermen are a special colourful site in the Mar del Plata port. You have to go very early to see them leave, but you can go in the afternoon to watch them come in. You'll have a wonderful experience watching the fishermen "guarded" by flocks of seagulls flitting around waiting for a spare fish. It's a very pretty walk that I recommend.
This is a photo I took while I waited to enter my first (and only) photography class, when I saw a girl there who had put herself in my frame, when I arrived home and saw it I noticed.The composition was nice. It´s here, so I´ll share it.
For students, professionals, and architecture lovers who can not visit, you can aso see it in the movie "The Man Next Door" (made in 2010) by Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat, because it is one of the backdrops.
Villa Victoria is the name of the house that once belonged to the famous Argentinian writer, Victoria Ocampo, and is currently home to the Cultural Centre that bears her name. This building was constructed by Manuel Ocampo, as a gift to Victoria's grandmother, Doña Francisca Ocampo Ocampo. Its picturesque style sets it apart from the rest of the neighbourhood, and it is surrounded by a beautiful garden, full of exquisitely beautiful plants. The cultural centre pays tribute to Victoria Ocampo, born in Buenos Aires on 7 April, 1890. Her parents moved to France when she was very young, and she was educated at the Sorbonne. Her return to her homeland was an important step in the cultural growth of Argentina. Villa Victoria, a wood and iron building, was transformed by Victoria into a meeting place for writers. In 1973, she donatd the house to UNESCO. After her death, it was auctioned and purchased by the City of Mar del Plata; since then, it has been a cultural centre, and houses lectures and temporary exhibitions.
San Miguel del Monte, in Buenos Aires province, is just 110 kilometers from the federal capital. Harmonically it combines history, tradition and culture. Apparently it was founded on November 18, 1779 on the same day in which they began to build the chapel of the fort, one of the first outposts to combat raids. It was ordered to be built by the Viceroy Vertiz. The city has no particular architectural style, many of the houses are very old and typical. A variant brought from Europe and corresponding in each case to particular tastes of the traveller. Other modern houses with courtyards and many chalets combines the present with the past in a place that has become suitable for weekend trips for retirees. The data is from the Department of Tourism Monte
The Magrassi GUILLERMO ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM, is different and removed from the ALFAR Zone, beaches and center of Mar del Plata. This museum can be visited only on Saturdays and Sundays and is an alternative cultural trip during Spring Break and Summer. You will appreciate a fine exhibition of CERAMIC and MAYAN ARCHAEOLOGY, and countless other pieces of great interest that this Argentine sociologist and anthropologist collected to learn rather than steal....
