Tour of Montserrat – Walk 1 — Avenida de Mayo – February 18 at 11 am

Monserrat and San Telmo are the most historical neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Yet Monserrat is less well-known and is often confused with San Telmo, even though it is the location of the most important buildings in the city – buildings where many national and local decisions are made.

Montserrat may be small but it has a lot of history in its streets and venues.  For this reason, we have decided to visit it twice, on two different walks.

Please join us for this first tour of the year.  Walk with us along Montserrat´s most important avenue: Avenida de Mayo. We will also talk about Plaza de Mayo and Plaza del Congreso.  In addition, we will visit the Casa de la Cultura Building (formerly the Diario La Prensa).
