The youngest neighborhood of Buenos Aires unveils its mysteries of the old port and luxury skyscrapers. Inland reclaimed from the Río de la Plata, the highest towers of the country are erected on the foundations of an abandoned port for almost a century. A young and affluent neighborhood, residential, with luxury hotels and yachting clubs, with imposing urban planning, steps from Plaza de Mayo.
We will witness the transformation of the area, from the port of Buenos Aires that was for some years to the grandiloquence of luxury and current comfort, through the abandonment of decades and the real estate boom of the 90s, vitiated by negotiations and corruption.
The waterfront, which was a summer resort and popular Sunday stroll, is now a splendid view of the Costanera Sur ecological reserve, a vast area of vegetation and native fauna generated by the sediments that the river itself drags.
Points such as the Puente de la Mujer, the Sarmiento Frigate, the Las Nereidas Monumental Fountain (by Lola Mora), the Costanera Sur, the Faena Hotel, the Alvear Tower (more high city), and the Paseo de la Gloria, among others.
This activity includes:
- Puente de la Mujer

- Fuente Monumental Las Nereidas
- Hotel Hilton
- Costanera Sur
- Espigón Plus Ultra
- Hotel Faena
- Torre Alvear
