This Week in Buenos Aires

Monday

Most museums are closed on Mondays, so it’s a good day to view the city’s architectural landmarks, such as the Casa Rosada, The Cavanagh Building, and Congress amongst others. Check out some suggestions and quirky finds here.

Browsing the Corrientes bookstores is also an enjoyable option that should be accompanied by a hot chocolate with churros at traditional cafe La Giralda.

(Fainá by mteson)

If you’re planning on going to the famous Av. 9 de Julio and to the obelisco, Wednesday might be a good day as you can catch a free classical music concert in the close by Gran Rex Theatre at 1pm. Right across the street from the theatre is “Las Cuartetas” one of the most famous pizza parlors in town. We recommend you try the ‘Fugazzeta’ (an onion and cheese pizza) and fainá, a thin chickpea “tortilla”

In the evening British singer Jaime Lydell presents his last record, Compass, in Niceto Club in Palermo.
