Known as the París of South América, Buenos Aires still looks for its own identity. In this exploration we will discover the architectonic heritage of Buenos Aires 19th century aristocracy. Eclectic palaces struggle to keep their splendid glamour in a modern and irregular city where gentrification, real state speculation and urban changes start to put in danger our architectural patrimony. We end the walking tour at the incredible yet decadent Recoleta Cemetery where the remains of the aristocracy families rest in peace. Please note that this is a walking tour: we will walk, explore and use the public transportation (metro + local buses) to move from one point to another. This experience takes about 5 hours, but since the tour is not rushed it can take some extra -yet enjoyable- time.
