Plaza de Mayo is the main plaza of Buenos Aires. Located in the city's microcenter, the Plaza is the home of Casa Rosada, which is the office and executive mansion of the President of Argentina. The plaza is the site of many historical protests and events, and is still often seen crowded with protesters today. Many of the cities major landmarks are also located near the plaza.

Located in front of La Casa Rosada, the executive house of Argentina, La Plaza de Mayo has seen its fair share of political upheaval and energy. This is where the 1810 revolution that led to independence happened. This is where demonstrations in 1945 forced the release from prison of Perón, Argentina's most famous president. This is where Las Madres, who demand justice for their children who went missing during the Dirty War, continue to march every Tuesday. This is where Argentines spontaneously gathered in mourning after former President Nestór Kirchner's death in 2007.
La Plaza de Mayo is the political center of the city, and a trip to Buenos Aires would be incomplete without a visit to this historical and political landmark.

The largest plaza I went to and probably the most famous. The Casa Rosada is located here as well as several other famous and historical buildings. It was a blend of historical and modern architecture. You really got a sense of history when you walked through the plaza for the first time.

One of the main square in Buenos Aires. There are a lot of sights to see and activities to do. A mix of historical buildings, commercial structures, museums, restaurants and cafe. An excellent place to explore the city. Be ready and wear your comfortable shoes because there will be a lot of walking.

Plaza de Mayo is right next to the Casa Rosada, the presidential office, so many political groups have literally set up camp in the plaza. That wasn't a problem, but they were there. The surrounding areas have shops and restaurants.

The Plaza de Mayo is the very heart and soul of Buenos Aires, and by extension, Argentina. Before independence this was a marketplace, and during the quest for independence, the renowned citizens (freedom fighters) of Buenos Aires met here to plot strategy. After Independence, this became the administrative and political center of Buenos Aires, where political rallies and citizen protests were held.

Central plaza that is lined by souvenir shops and tourist eateries, Plaza de Mayo is also one that carries a lot of history and characters when the artists are out doing their art things.
