DISCOVERING... RECOLETA & RETIRO!!
Walking is a beautiful habit, and unlike moving around the city by car, bus or bicycle, it gives you time to look up, observe buildings and situations, stop and take pictures.
We will walk about three kilometers through the streets, historical squares and the most beautiful park in the city of Buenos Aires, stopping every now and then to talk about the history of the city. The tour begins in Plaza San Martín, where we will start to learn about Argentine history, continue to one of the biggest railway stations in South America and will end in Recoleta Cemetery.
- Plaza San Martín, where we can see the origin of BA in 1580 and locals fought in the English Invasions in 1806/7.
- Retiro Railway Station, where the inmigrants departed to the north of the country. We will learn some fabulous anecdotes!
- Recoleta Cemetery and sorroundings: it contains the graves of notable people, including Eva Perón and presidents of Argentina. In 2013, CNN listed it among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
We will know the history of tango, how to dance it and what are the rules to follow when dancing in a milonga. We will learn what is "mate", the national drink of the Argentines.
A few years ago with a foreign friend I discovered by chance how beautiful walking tours BA could have, and now I would love to share it with tourists so that together we could also have that incredible experience.
The experience is unique!!
