Melián Avenue and Belgrano R

Stoned, charming and bright streets

  • Av. Melian 2100

Inside Buenos Aires there is a place where we seem to leave, for a moment, the big city and we enter a romantic movie of yesteryear. Stoned, charming and bright streets. Tall trees in both paths, whose opposite bows embrace when they reach the sky. Large mansions, some old, marked English style. All this can be found in Belgrano R, the most exclusive area of the Belgrano neighborhood, and it can be lived in a much more impressive way on Avenida Melián, starting from La Pampa. The "R" means "Residential", and that's what you breathe when you walk through this neighborhood. A relaxed and quiet place where hundreds of families live in some of the most beautiful houses and buildings in the city. Walking unhurriedly along Melián Avenue, stopping to appreciate the architecture of their residences and enjoying the shade of the lush trees is a more than recommended experience.

Not to be missed: On Melián Avenue is one of the oldest and most aristocratic schools in the city: the Buenos Aires English High School. This institution was founded in 1884 and is closely linked to the beginnings of soccer-football in Argentina. Its creator, the Scottish Alexander Watson Hutton, was convinced that it was necessary to add the practice of sports to the integral education of young people. So, when he founded this school, he made sure that his students could access the practice of all kinds of sports, but mainly soccer; since it still did not have much diffusion in Argentina. In the Buenos Aires English High School, the Alumni football team was created, which was a champion of several First Division tournaments, until its dissolution in 1911.
