Cathedral of La Plata - Argentina





Undoubtedly, the most iconic building of the city is the Cathedral, with its imposing neogothic style. It was partially inaugurated in the 1930s but, like the case of the Sagrada Familia of Barcelona in Spain, the building was finished in the 1990s, several decades after. It has a museum and an elevator who goes to the top, where you can get some great shots of La Plata.

Buenos Aires: La Boca & San Telmo





SAN TELMO

San Telmo is the smallest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. At the same time, it also concentrates a lot of the essential events and history of the city. When Buenos Aires grew fast in the 1800s, the aristocracy built their palaces on the south. In the 1870s, with the yellow fever epidemic, they moved to the north, mostly to the Recoleta and Retiro neighborhoods, where they still live today. On the same era, quite a few diverse kind of churches were built, such as the Danish, Swedish, and the Russian Orthodox churches. The big immigration waves came to the country also on the same era so the old owners of the palaces rented their old houses to the new immigrants, mostly from Italy and Spain. A particular phenomenon of Buenos Aires also appeared on those decades: the famous Casas-Chorizo (translated: “Saussage-Houses”), basically houses with a central hallway surrounded by rooms where a lot of immigrant families lived. After almost 100 years of decline, San Telmo had its rebirth after the crisis of 2001 and it rapidly keeps on growing: new antique shops, a must-see for the new waves of tourists in the city, and the perfect place for the boutique-hotels along with the Recoleta and Palermo neighborhoods.


LA BOCA

Caminito is today a main touristic point of Buenos Aires where you’re going to hear every language but spanish. Since the 1990s, just a few blocks around Caminito were guarded by the police, but since the crisis of the country in 2001 and the gradual revitalization of the south of the city, more blocks were added to the tourist area. This place called Caminito is exclusively a tourist meeting point nowadays, but it was very different back in the old days of the beginning of the 20th Century. In those days, the whole neighborhood was full of ships, cranes, fights between the “guapos porteños” (the name given to the bad guys of that times in Buenos Aires), and even a big bridge to transport the tramway from the capital city to the suburbes (“Gran Buenos Aires”), in front of the ending of the river called Riachuelo. However, La Boca is far known because of one of the most important football clubs of the world: the Club Atlético Boca Juniors. It’s in this neighborhood were the tourists get to know the astounding passion of the argentine people for the football, being the most famous sport in the country. The roots of Buenos Aires stays in La Boca and the south of the city.

Montevideo, Uruguay: Mercado Agrícola






Built at the beginning of the 20th Century, the Mercado Agrícola (that could be translated as the “Agricultural Market”) is one of the main esential points of the tourist map of Montevideo. The zone where it’s placed was once a neighborhood of industries and factories, most of them reconverted nowadays into residences or office buildings. The Mercado Agrícola stands for its rich details on its facade but, also, for the utilization of the iron, for both the structure and several sectors of the building, a material that it usually wasn’t used at this part of the planet.

Basílica de Luján - Argentina




The Basilica of Luján is doubly special for Argentina: from the point of view of the architecture, is an epic neogothic temple, recently restored and with a new view of the main square who gives a bigger impact from the entrance to the city from the National Route 5. Just next to the Cathedral of La Plata, it is the biggest temple of the country. But its importance lies on the culture of Argentina itself. The building shelters the figure of Our Lady Luján, the most important icon of the country. Next to the bed on every catholic house of Argentina lies a figue of her. The Basilica is also the last stop of a massive peregrination every year. Our Lady of Luján is the patron saint of the whole country, so that tells you how important it is for the catholic argentines (most of the population).
