Buenos Aires must have been on the same level of development than the European nations around 1900 (where most of these buildings have been built, I guess). At least these detailed and gorgeous buildings look at least as good than comparable buildings here in Germany! Onnly that in Germany there are not nearly as many of them left.
Buenos Aires is also (tied with Rio) my fav in South America for future visits (maybe even more likely than Rio, because habla un poco de espanol)

Having never been to Buenos Aires, I've always heard it referred to as the "Paris of Latin America". But after seeing these pics, I think it looks a lot like Madrid. The domes, the style remind me a lot of Madrid not Paris.

At any rate, it looks like a beautiful city that I hope to visit at some point. Thanks for the photos!

You're right, between 1900 and 1950 Argentina's GDP per capita was on par with that of western europe. After that it started lagging.

I've just seen the set of pictures on this page (I made a comment on page 1 as well) and one could look at these buildings all day. We have some great domed buildings in Bucharest as well. I think I'll start a "Bucharest Domes" thread at some point.
