Buenos Aires: the Paris of Latin America...
Amazing natural richness, modern skyscrapers, impressive mountains, gorgeous beaches, Latin American passion combined with a strong European legacy, the latest fashion tendencies, Diego Maradona scoring an impossible goal, sensual shapes dancing tango under a starry sky… Welcome to Argentina!
Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina, the second largest country in Latin American and the eighth largest in the world. Located on the shore of the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires is the biggest and most famous city of Argentina and also its main port (Rio de la Plata means "Silver River", but it’s usually referred to in English-speaking countries as the River Plate).
Buenos Aires...an amazing mixing
Mi Buenos Aires querido… (as the tango says, “my dear Buenos Aires”) is a fabulous tourist destination that is becoming a favourite hotspot of visitors from all over the world. Analysing the complex past of Buenos Aires (and Argentina itself) it’s not surprising the rich and unique culture that mixes Latin American with European origins.
Spanish and Italian roots are the most common: mainly from the Galician, Asturian and Basque regions of Spain, and the Calabrian, Ligurian, Piedmont, Lombardy and Neapolitan regions of Italy. Other immigrant groups include German, Arabic, Portuguese, Polish, Irish, French, Croatian, English and Welsh. Argentinian cuisine for example is the most obvious result of all these traditions melted together: you can find delicious pasta, world-famous Argentinian steaks, empanadas, pizzas, mate (a sort of tea drunk through a straw), etc…
