If you look at the flower during the sunset you will be able to see how the flower will close slowly till it will be completely closed!!

This is one of the coolest hmmm sculptures ever! It is a giant shiny metal flower that opens during the day and closes at night. In a beautiful city filled with much more serious monuments (often celebrating failed revolutions!), this is a delightful touch of whimsy. And it's free!

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.
