Obelisco - Obelisk, Buenos Aires: 52 reviews and 69 photos

by wadekorzan

This Obelisk, located really sort of in the center of the city, is an icon of Buenos Aires. It commemorates 400 years since the founding of the city. It's nothing overwhelming, but you should pass by it at some point. It is kind of har to miss!

An important tip: in Buenos Aires, there are many protests all the time. Many of these protests take place surrounding the Obelisk. As I write this, all of the pharmacy employees are striking there today. It is best to avoid protests and strikes while you are here, so just go around it if you see one there, don't walk through the protest. usualy the protest are peaceful, but you never know.

Address: Av. 9 de Julio s/n, 1043 Buenos Aires
