  El Obelisco rising out in middle of 9 de Julio
by mtncorg

9 July 1816 in Tucuman, Unitarian politicians signed Argentina?s declaration of independence from Spain ? Federalists stayed away. In commemoration, BsAs named this grand avenue in that date?s honor. The avenue dates to the grand urban redesign that took place between 1932 and 1938. Nearly in the middle of the avenue?s length, slightly to the north where Avenida Corrientes crosses it, you will find the Obelisco and the Plaza de Republica. For a good view of the avenue, try the bar in the Crowne Plaza Americano. The avenue serves as a semi-freeway and for the walker will be better known for how many lights it takes to cross rather than some grand greenbelted oasis.
