Discover the origins of the Argentinian capital on our Free Historical Center Tour of Buenos Aires. Enjoy the colonial hispanic architecture and understand the strong determination of the ruling classes of the 19th century to turn this city into a modern European capital in South America.

Hear at May Square the account of the insurrection 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 how they found themselves in a period of Civil Wars that would last nearly four decades.

Admire the Casa Rosada (The Pink House), marvel at the stories of San Martin, and be moved by the May Mothers, who every Thursday gather to ask for the return of their lost children during the 1970’s military dictatorship, the darkest period in the country’s recent history.

On our Historical Tour of Buenos Aires you will walk through the most history charged area of Buenos Aires, and we will give you the keys to decipher the bloody development of Argentina, helping you understand why one of the countries with the most natural wealth is incapable of overcoming its social and political issues.
