Cultural Highlights of Buenos Aires

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires isn’t dubbed the Paris of South America for nothing—a city known for its distinctive architecture, cultural institutions, art and nightlife. You can see centuries of local art in top galleries such as Museo de Arte LatinoAmericano and European masterpieces in Museo de Bellas Artes.

Buenos Aries is all about vibrant colors and charisma, and you can experience that in spades at Centro Cultural Torquato Tasso, and the grandiose theatre Teatro Colón—if you can tear your eyes off the décor. And who knows, with open-air tango demonstrations and classes Buenos Aires’ famous Café Tortoni.

Of course there is history at every turn, from Eva Peron’s balcony at Casa Rosada to the Metropolitan Cathedral.
