Very interesting piece of art. A real shame the 'mechanical' side of the flower was not working. I suspect it would be just mezmerising when it is functional. Definitely worth a nice walk, plus the university next to it is also a stunning piece of architecture.

This sculpture is very remarkable and glistens in the sun. I would have liked to see the mechanics of it work, but I visited midday.

Free entrance, currently under construction so you can't get a picture without a huge ugly fence surrounding the base of the statue

It´s been under repair since ages!! A pity!! Its marvelous and amazing but no charming if its not moving!! Just stop by to see it for a while and thats it. You have the University of Buenos Aires Law College by it´s side so its also a nice place to look at if you love architecture.

I passed this statue in a taxi without feeling that there was anything special about it. I couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

This is an impressive statue but it is not that easy to take photos without people in it. There is also a barricade round it which is not very pretty. Interesting up close.

Apparently, this sculpture open and closes with sunrise and sunset. It is currently being fixed, but worth seeing anyway.

I first noticed this sculpture when our City Tour Bus passed by along its location. When the "Yellow LIne" of our City Tour Bus ended, we waited for its "Blue Line" bus right in front of this attraction. I therefore had more time to see and watch it. As most reviewers had written, it is broken thus the petals do... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
