"Retiro & San Nicolas : Corrientes" Avenida Corrientes Tip by ptitetoile

Avenida Corrientes, Buenos Aires: 9 reviews and 11 photos


For me, Corrientes is the street that is the most synonymous of Buenos Aires.

In its first part, it a cultural centre : it is full of important theaters, cinemas, book stores and cafés which invite to a permanent meeting with country's art and culture. Tango had its most glorious famous nights and stronghold in calle Corrientes, when it was narrow and also after its enlargement as an avenue In 1936.

In its second part, it is a shopping centre...There you will feel the ryhtm of life of the people with the thousands colorful cheap clothes shops, the people walking on the streets, the children going to school in their uniform. And of course you have always next to that the million taxis yellow and black and their uncessead ballet.
In fact, I could observe it each day because I lived in the neighborhood of number 2000, so it is a little bit further in the direction of the Abasto neighborhood...I loved it!!!!!
