Description

The May Square is the spot where Spanish conquistador Juan de Garay founded the city in 1580. There had been a previous settlement a little further south in 1536 by another Spanish conquistador, Pedro de Mendonza, but the site was abandoned six years later. On the tour you will have to look around all the time because that way you’ll notice that the square is surrounded by some the most important political and religious institutions in the city: the House of Government known as the Casa Rosada, with its particular pink hue; opposite, the Cabildo or Town Hall, the whitewashed Neo-Colonial building on the left side of Avenida de Mayo, the City Government Palace, on the right side of the Avenida de Mayo and finally the imposing Metropolitan Cathedral, mother church of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, with its classical portico and unique blend of architectural styles. Take time to learn about the significance of all these notable sites and more, asking your guide as many questions as you wish along the way.
