Free Walking Tour of Buenos Aires
The tour meets in the centre of the port city, to begin our free tour of Buenos Aires, throughout which we'll reveal the history of the Argentinian capital.
Our tour begins in the city's most iconic landmarks, beginning with the National Congress Building, found in one of the most beautiful squares in the capital. From here, our free tour takes us around places such as the Barolo Palace, or the Mural of Evita Perón, where we'll discover the fascinating history of one of the most famous Argentinian women to have ever lived.
Next, we'll continue in one of the most emblematic places in the Argentinian capital, such as the Obelisk, the Tortoni Café or the beautiful La Prensa building. Then we'll lead you to Plaza de Mayo, one of the most famous parts of the South American metropolis, and where the Argentinian Republic was first declared. And just in front, you can find the famous Casa Rosada, the home to Argentina's government, and on whose balcony we can just imagine Evita Person singing "No llores por mi Argentina".
Here you'll hear the story of how every Thursday the so-called "Mothers of May" meet to demand the return of the children lost during the military dictatorship during the 1970s, one of the most difficult moments in the history of the country.
The free walking tour of Buenos Aires then comes to an end in front of the Casa Rosada.
