Things to do in Buenos Aires

As Argentina’s capital, and the country’s largest city, Buenos Aires has plenty to offer those who travel there. Here, we share some of the best things to do during your trip.

Visit Casa Rosada

Casa Rosada, or the Pink House, is the workplace of the Argentinian president, and has been recognised as a National Historic Monument of Argentina. Sitting on the edge of Plaza de Mayo, a great spot for partaking in a bit of people watching, Casa Rosada is one of Buenos Aires’ most symbolic buildings, and is home to a museum where you can find artefacts which represent previous Argentinian presidents. Due to its fantastic history and its importance to Argentina, seeing this building certainly deserves a spot in your Buenos Aires itinerary.

Experience San Telmo market

Taking place on Sundays, the San Telmo market can be described as a street fair due to the amount of buzzing activity that takes place here. Welcoming around 12,000 people every weekend, you can pick up everything from antique souvenirs to striking pieces of artwork here. With 270 stalls to browse, and plenty of street performers to watch, a visit to this market offers the perfect way to immerse yourself into the city’s culture, and pick up some treats while you’re there.

Eat steak and drink wine

An important part of every holiday is trying out the destination’s food, and a trip to Buenos Aires is no different. Steak and red wine form a big part of Argentinian culture, and locals often gather for barbeques, or asados, where they’ll enjoy beef and wine together. There are lots of places where you can enjoy steak in the city, and restaurants suitable for every budget, so every visitor will have the chance to try this delicious local staple.

On the subject of food, another delicacy you must try in Buenos Aires is empanadas. Made with meat, cheese, vegetables, or a tasty combination of them all, these snacks have a fried or baked shell and can be found everywhere from bakeries to restaurants.
