This is the widest highway in the world and came about when they knocked down a few blocks for 2km and thus widened the existing road network to clear the traffic jams. This appears still not to have worked as one can still see gridlocked on this 20-lane highway at many hours of the day. The road separates the city... More

Many years ago it used to be building everywhere. Then all the building where removed to créate one of the widest avenues in the world. Now they even have Exclusive Bus lines thru the middle. It is one of the points of interest for Buenos Aires... but also for the locals. Each time a local team wins at soccer the... More

The most exciting street in Buenos Aires and the largest street in the world. It was so fun ride around in a taxi at night looking at the street lights and glare from the event venues. This street was surprisingly slow on Sundays in the morning until the afternoon. I enjoyed that time for good photos of of the Obelisco.... More

This broad street is said to be the widest boulevard in South America if not the world. It is has four main lanes and two side lanes on either side of the green median which features trees and monuments. It is, literally, the central artery of the city. At its center, where Av. Corrientes crosses, is the Obelisco commemorating the... More

The widest Avenue in the world is very difficult to cross. I have to say that one has to be patient to simply to traverse it. It is very elegant.

Avenida 9 De Julio is known as the widest avenue in the world. The avenue has seven lanes in each direction plus two lanes for turning to the side streets. To cross the street it takes three changes of red lights. Lots of sights along the way. For example, there is a large obelisk in the center of the street... More

You will have to drive there when visiting the city. Our hotel, the Sofitel once and the Novotel the second time, were located nearby. That led us walk along the avenue and in its neighborhood. It is spacious, crowded, lively, and you can see pretty building. If you go below the bridge at the end of the avenue, close to... More
