  • Av. de Mayo 500 al 1500

If there are two places that completely represent the political history of our country and the City of Buenos Aires, those are the Congress and the Casa Rosada. And there is a street that connects them: Mayo Avenue. Iconic, always busy, crossed by classic local cafes and delicious architecture, the Mayo Avenue is a walk that every visitor (and every local) must take. It was inaugurated on July 9, 1894 and its design was inspired by the grand boulevards of Paris. Below it runs the first line of Buenos Aires subways: Line A, which originally went from Mayo Square to Miserere Square in the Once neighborhood.

Hint: there are numerous obligatory stops on Mayo Avenue, such as the Castelar Hotel, the Barolo Palace, the Theater Avenue, the 33 Billares bar or the London City restaurant. But if we had to stay with only one place, this is the famous and historic Tortoni Café. Witness of culture and art, the Tortoni at the time was frequented by Benito Quinquela Martín, Alfonsina Storni, Baldomero Fernandez Moreno, Carlos Gardel, Roberto Arlt, Jorge Luis Borges and many other recognized artists of the City. To Visit the Tortoni Café is to feel immersed in the hectic social and cultural life of Buenos Aires at the beginning of the century.
