Palermo Chico and Barrio Parque

Located in Buenos Aires City, capital of República Argentina.-

Across Figueroa Alcorta Avenue, between San Martín de Tours and Tagle streets, Palermo Chico ("Small" or "Exclusive" Palermo) is the most upmarket part of Palermo










Once a quarter full of splendid mansions set in broad private parks, many luxury condominiums and apartment houses are now to be seen.

Embassy of Portugal











San Martín monument







Neighbouring Barrio Parque is strictly a residential area, laid out in winding streets by Charles Thays; many of the wealthy and famous own homes there, like Mirtha Legrand, Susana Gimenez, Mauricio Macri, Mariano Grondona y Eduardo Constantini and Francisco Macri.

Floralis Genérica

The gleaming steel and aluminum petals of this giant flower look very space age, perhaps because they were commissioned from the Lockheed airplane factory by architect Eduardo Catalano, who designed and paid for the monument.





The 20-meter-high structure begins to open at dawn and closes at dusk, when the setting sun turns its mirrored surfaces a glowing pink. Local opinions are divided on the flower, but it counts cutting-edge Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca among its fans..








The flower stands in the Plaza Naciones Unidas (behind El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes over Avenida Figueroa Alcorta), which was remodeled to accommodate it. The small square is refreshingly free of dog mess and thus a great place for a picnic or for kids to roll on the grass. OPEN: Dawn-dusk.





MALBA, the Museum of Latin American Art in Buenos Aires, is located between Barrio Parque.














The Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires (Spanish: Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, MALBA) is a museum created by Argentine businessman Eduardo F. Constantini. It is a not-for-profit institution featuring the Constantini Collection, and also a dynamic cultural center, that constantly updates art and film exhibitions and develops cultural activities













The collection includes Paints of the most famous latin american artist: Frida Kahlo, Wilfredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Diego Rivera, Juaquín Torres-García, Antonio Berni, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, Jorge de la Vega, Tarsila do Amaral, Pedro Figari, Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica, Liliana Porter, Guillermo Kuitca, José Bedia Valdés.

The mission of the MALBA is to collect, preserve, research and promote Latin American art from the onset of the 20th century to the present. This also involves educating the public to foster their knowledge in Latin American artists, in the diversity of cultural and artistic holdings in this region, sharing such responsibility both with the national and the international community./B]

Comments like these are what perpetuates Argentina's reputation in Latin America as the most arrogant country in the region. Not the best way to make friends.
Beautiful area, by the way.
