Obelisk of Buenos Aires, Argentina

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 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 founding of the city and it seems to suit its location in the centre of this enormous avenue.

Tigre Delta, Argentina

Tigre is a town north of Greater Buenos Aires and is a popular day trip from the city. Tigre is the launch place for the Paraná Delta (commonly referred to as the Tigre Delta), which is a scenic waterway filled with weekend houses and campsites for those looking to escape the city.

I visited Tigre Delta on a day trip tour from Buenos Aires, which gives you the option to visit San Isidro on the way there.
