  • Between the Spanish conquistadors, the Italian and Jewish immigrants, characters such as the glamorous Evita Peron and the scholarly Jorge Luis Borges, the birth of tango, and the dinosaurs that inhabited Patagonia eons ago, Argentina boasts a rich history that it proudly wears on its sleeve, inviting visitors to get interested and learn more about this massive, diverse country and its people. All kinds of tours and guide books are available to help you understand Buenos Aires' cultural and historical context, but for the mildly curious, simply strolling down historical Avenida de Mayo from Plaza de Mayo's cathedral, city hall, and government house towards Plaza Congreso, one can get a feel for the architecture and lifestyle of years past.
