Buenos Aires City Center

Growing from a colonial town into a modern metropolis, Buenos Aires city center has been at the heart of city life for over four centuries. The downtown area is a bustling hub of history, government and political activity and a center for commerce, with a frenetic mix of businesses, shops and financial institutions.

The city center encompasses the official barrios (neighborhoods) of San Nicolas, Retiro, Monserrat & Balvanera, and the unofficial barrios of the Congreso, Once & Abasto (all part of Balvanera) plus Tribunales & the Microcentro (both part of San Nicolas).

To get your head around the very heart of the city, and learn how the city came from a small colonial outpost over 400 years ago to the huge sprawling metropolis it is today, then take our private walking tour of the historical city center.
