Buenos Aires is a bit like my home city of Melbourne in that it’s a city with beautiful old buildings and leafy streets, but no iconic landmark that you could use to represent the city. The landmark that represents BA is the Obelisco de Buenos Aires (Obelisk of Buenos Aires).
The Obelisk is located in the middle of the city on 9 de Julio Avenue (the widest avenue in the world). It was built in 1936 to celebrate the fourth centenary of the founding of the city and it seems to suit its location in the centre of this enormous avenue.
