There is so much to this avenue that you can spend as little as an hour or as much a day going through it, from one side to the other, stopping to see all the vendors, and shops. The weather of course plays a big...More

When we were here many, many years ago, the center of this very grand boulevard was a dusty car park. We were shocked as many pointed to it as a European-style grand boulevard. It's now up to par, nicely landscaped.

Great to ramble along this avenue, you have a lot to see and take picture around there. We were there in November and saw lots of Jacaranda trees in bloom, bottle trees with 'cotton wool' blossom, birds of paradise and more. There are also some...More

The name of Avenue honors Argentina's Independence Day, July 9, 1816. The avenue has up to seven lanes in each direction, always traffic is heavy and through the center of the avenue runs one of Metrobus's corridors. The main landmarks along the avenue are, Teatro...More

Not sure if it is true, but OMG this boulevars is large. I counted ten lanes for each direction, and you need to add the strips of green (great idea!) on some sections. A fantastic promenade on one of the most famous places on Earth.

Crossing twenty lanes of traffic may be an uphill battle on the Avenida 9 de Julio. As you cross the widest street in America, there are street vendors, shops, tango show theaters, and the pièce de résistance- the national historical monument- the Obelisco de Buenos...More
