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

Too bad it is no longer operational. The guide said they are reworking the flower so that it once again opens a dawn and closes at Dusk.

Of course it depends on one's taste whether you like the sculpture or not. But it is worth seeing - one can easily reach it during a trip with the hop-off-hop-on-bus. The sculpture is located in a big park and you can have a nice rest there. And it is not far from several other interesting places. Do not miss!

FG is a nice sculpture in a good location. Unfortunately the mechanism that makes it open and close its petals during the day was broken when we visited it. Still a great photo opportunity within walking distance from Recoleta Cemetery.

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.
