Destino Argentina

La esencia del lujo

I have always felt that there is something about Buenos Aires I like. I like it so much that I don't like other people to like it. It is a love like that, jealousy.

BUENOS AIRES: THE CITY

Buenos Aires has Tango

Buenos Aires might very well be a Tango. Nostalgic, with passionate love. A music that gets into your soul with an accent that sounds so much like this city. There are moments when you cry for it, but it always makes you feel good. It is a fusion and bandoneon. Pure melancholy.

Buenos Aires is Gardel.

Buenos Aires has History

Torcuato de Alvear, its first mayor, dreamed of a boulevard as the ones in Paris, and thus, Avenida de Mayo and its legendary Cafés were born, linking Plaza de Mayo with Plaza de los Dos Congresos, both cradles of the political history of the country.
In the lavish pantheons of the Recoleta Cemetery lie the souls of the most influential characters in Argentina.
It is distinction and nobility. Pure tradition.

Buenos Aires is cobblestone.

Buenos Aires has Firewood

A Creole cuisine with a strong Italian and Spanish influence. What else can you ask for?
In Buenos Aires, embers blaze on grills at all hours with amazing cuts of meat, while famous chefs create art in their cocinas de autor, an idea and philosophy for emphasizing the delight of every flavour, aroma, colour and above all, the true taste of each offering. If there is anything that the city can boast about is having an excellent gastronomy. It is barbecue and haute cuisine. Pure fire.

Buenos Aires is fusion.

Buenos Aires has Rhythm

The city that never sleeps... It is a restless and avant-garde spot. Palermo is design and creativity;  Corrientes is theatre; San Telmo, antiques and markets; the Obelisk is frenzy and Puerto Madero, architecture with the Puente de la Mujer (Bridge of the Woman). It is the city of the football pitches and Latin American art. Culture can be felt in our senses. It is nightclubs and milonga. Pure music.

Buenos Aires is Piazzola.

Buenos Aires has Soul

The city of the Porteños, which is how they are know  throughout the country. The city of the fans, of football fans and of rock fans. A city of psychoanalysts and psychoanalysed, a city in therapy. An exaggerated language and metaphors. It is smile and criticism. Pure life.

Buenos Aires is Mafalda.
