Thank you guys for the feedback.

Hi Emarg,

Thanks for the great pictures. Can you tell me are there any observation decks in Buenos Aires? Which buildings did you go on top, can we also go on top of the same buildings?

Those were taken from some of the skyscrapers of Catalinas (shown in the next images), but those are close all the year and they only opened for a public event, the Open House 48HS B.A.

I would try some other buildings like the top of the Barolo Palace, the highest floors of the German Club (at the Microcentro), the restaurant of the roof of the COMEGA Building (I believe they closed it for a couple of months), and observation decks from the top of famous hotels such us the Alvear Hotel, the Sofitel, or the Hotel Panamericano. I would recommend to call them after going.

2. SKYSCRAPERS OF CATALINAS


These are some of the towers placed between the Leandro N. Alem and Eduardo Madero avenues, which conforms the skyline who can be seen from Puerto Madero. The terrains were part of the Catalinas Masterplan (in the 1970s), planned in International Style towers. However, the original masterplan wasn't finished and several dark courtain wall buildings stays in most of those terrains today. At the same time, the area built by these towers went more even far away, going across the Microcentro and getting to the front of the famous Luna Park.

These are them, in order of appearance:

1) BankBoston Tower (Architect: César Pelli)
2) Bouchard 710 Tower (Architect: Mario Roberto Álvarez)
3) Bouchard Plaza Tower (Architects: SEPRA, HOK, y Aisenson)
4) Pirelli Tower (Architect: Mario Bigongiari)
5) República Tower (Architect: César Pelli)

3. PARKS OF BUENOS AIRES



Buenos Aires is also known for its amazing parks, most of them designed by Carlos Thays in the beginning of the twentieth centrury. The biggest ones are the famous Parque 3 de Febrero (often called “Palermo Woods”) and the Almirante Brown Park, in the south of the city. Most of the parks of Buenos Aires were planned following the french urbanism of that time, as well as most of the parks of the other cities of the south and central America.

These are the ones I visit the most:

1) The Rosedal of Palermo
2) The Botanic Garden (Palermo)
3) The Japanese Garden (Palermo)



THE ROSEDAL OF PALERMO
















THE BOTANIC GARDENS


















THE JAPANESE GARDENS

4. LA BOCA – CAMINITO - RIACHUELO


Caminito is today a central touristic point of Buenos Aires where you're going to hear every language but spanish. Since the decade of 1990, just a few blocks around Caminito were guarded by the police, but since the crisis of the country in 2001 and the revaluation of the south of the city, more blocks were added to the touristic area.

Caminito is exclusively touristic 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. These images capture those places:
