  Honour Guards at Attention
by Bwana_Brown
 
 

As we strolled past the main entrance of the of the Casa Rosada, it was interesting to see two members of the Honour Guard on duty, dressed in the uniforms of 1813 era Grenadiers!

There is a Changing of the Guard ceremony every 2 hours during the day starting at 7 AM. We were there at noon so missed seeing how elaborate it was, but we did enjoy seeing the same thing at the Presidential Palace in Lisbon several months earlier!

Address: 50 Balcarce
Directions: Casa Rosada at Plaza de Mayo
