It is on your way to so many spots you can't miss it. No need to make a special trip. Compliments the park area.

It's like going for a walk on the park, with a huge beautiful flower in the middle. Right next to this park is the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (www.mnba.gob.ar), which might make a nice combination (also free, closed on mondays).

It's an amazing flower constructed by means of airplane materials. It guarantees you nice shots. Some touristic guides will tell you it opens during the day, and closes at night, but do not expect that; I was told by natives that the mechanism doesn't work for years. I do recommend for photos!

I was told that the open/close mechanism hasn't worked for years. It's a nice sculpture, but it's the type of place to visit on the way to something else. I wouldn't make a special trip.

Take some fun picture. One of the most lovely areas to visit when in Buenos Aires If you are walking by the Palermo Gardens, don´t miss "Paseo del Rosedal" (Roses promenade).

To many it may just seem like a statue or a simple flower, but it is a beautiful work of art and a beautiful viewfurthermore, is route airplanes, which gives beautiful pictures. Has no bathroom or place to eat, so I recommend you to take something to drink, have easy access.

We visited this as part of a day out from the Zoo, its a nice walk with a good sourounding area with interesting buildings. Some say the park is tired? We found it plesent and relaxed in the sunshine looking St the giant flower, we was told by a local it has continued mechanism problems and the cost to repair... More

Breathtaking - I love how it opens and closes!! A great photo opportunity. I have been told that recently the flower no longer opens and closes due to technical errors but hopefully that will be rectified soon.
