Buenos Aires is the great cosmopolitan capital of Argentina. At its center lies the Plaza de Mayo, surrounded by imposing 19th century buildings, including the Casa Rosada, the iconic presidential palace with several balconies. Other important attractions include the Colón Theater, a luxury opera house from 1908 with around 2500 seats, the National Museum of Fine Arts, and the modern MALBA museum, with Latin American art exhibits.

The city is also a theater hotspot and stands right alongside other great cultural capitals of the world, such as New York, Paris and London. With over 200 theaters and 230 halls among the commercial, independent and official theater circuits, the city’s theater scene knows no rest, with an offer of shows that defies imagination, including the most diverse genres.
