Puerto Madero and Catalina's, Buenos Aires: 4 reviews and 6 photos
Favorite thing: This is the area that used to house the old Buenos Aires port. And it connects the center of the city with the Costanera Sur. Today, near the four docks and after an extensive renovation, it's an area of upscale restaurants and shops, a pedestrian walkway and two floating museums: The Fritgata Sarmiento and the Corbeta Uruguay.
During the 19th century, the Darsena Norte area was the place where hundreds of thousands of immigrants arrived to Argentina, turning Buenos Aires into the cosmopolitan city it is today. The port was named after Eduardo Madero, who was an engineer and public servant, and whose design for the port was chosen from many competing designs.
