Small-Group City Tour of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods each have a distinctive character from the historic barrios of San Telmo and La Boca, to the beautiful parks and plazas of Palermo and Recoleta, and the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero. This small-group tour is ideal for first-time visitors or those short on time, visiting all of the top attractions in just half a day.

La Fuente de las Nereidasis a beautiful fountain that depicts the mythical story of the birth of the Greek goddess Venus, who sits naked atop a seashell while nereids (sea nymphs) and tritons dance around her. The statue created a scandal when it was first unveiled in 1903 by the Argentine sculptress Lola Mora. When the white marble sculpture was unveiled in 1903, people were horrified by the display of female nudity, and the fact that it was made by a woman only added to the controversy. Definitely worth stopping to see as it is one of the most beautiful fountains in Buenos Aires.

Found this fabulous marble fountain after completing the ecological walk near the Puerto Madero area. Protected by a clear screen it is still a delight to see. Not on a tourist track so you would have to go looking for it.
