Cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires remains one of the largest cities on the continent, serving as a point of departure for exploring the rest of the country.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cemiterio de Recoleta and La Boca. Take a break from the city and head to Parque 3 de Febrero and Reserva Natural Municipal Santa Catalina. Change things up with these side-trips from Buenos Aires: Tigre (Sarmiento House Museum, Delta Terra Natural Reserve, &more), Museo Ciudad San Fernando de Buena Vista (in San Fernando) and Castillo Pando Carabassa (in Pilar). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Calle Defensa, wander the streets of Puerto Madero, ponder the world of politics at Casa Rosada, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral Primada.
