Plaza de Mayo
The city centre of Buenos Aires, Plaza de Mayo has been the scene of the most momentous events in Argentine history, as well as the largest popular demonstrations in the country. On the occasion of the one-year anniversary of the May Revolution in 1811, the Pirámide de Mayo (English: May Pyramid) was inaugurated in the square’s hub, becoming Buenos Aires’ first national monument. It hosts the government house, the Buenos Aires Cathedral and the Cabildo, the site of Spain’s administration back in colonial times.
The newest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Puerto Madero hosts a beautiful waterfront, 5 star hotels, an ecological reserve and contemporary architecture. We walk from Plaza de Mayo down to the river – a great place to enjoy a Mate picnic! The most emblematic point for a picture is the Women’s Bridge, a stunning feat of engineering as well as a work of art. Its design resembles a hook or a tooth of some sort, but actually, the architect Santiago Calatrava designed the bridge to look like a couple dancing the tango. The bridge is pedestrian only, and rotates a full 90 degrees to allow ships to pass by.
A welcome escape from the busier districts in Buenos Aires, Tigre is a tranquil setting surrounded by bodies of water and nature. Your visit may include a ferry ride to an island just off the coast, a tour of the fruit market, or a trek through a nature reserve.
Your Support Staff
Travel Tip: We love what we do and want to talk to you! The Global Advising Center is here to help you decide on a program, and complete the Online Application. From the moment you first hear from us be it through a phone call, email or personal visit, you will find that our passion for international education is contagious. We’re ready to launch you abroad.
Travel Tip: Leave everything you think you know about traveling, the country, culture, or people, behind you! You’ll most likely be surprised, so discover everything as new. Take public transportation and make friends with locals- they will show you the best places and usually hook you up. Most of all, stay present and enjoy! 🙂
Travel Tip: Drink coffee the local way. Dine with a host family. Eat some recommended street food. Drink fresh juice from local fruits. Find that hole-in-the-wall restaurant that will probably serve the best meal of your time abroad (and it will likely cost less too!). Food and drink can be an excellent inroad to getting to know another culture.
