The area
Neighborhood: Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

The (Instituto Nacional Sanmartiniano) is an interesting cultural building dedicated to Gen. Jose San Martin, who along with Venezuelan Simon Bolivar, was one of the two most important figures in South America’s move to Independence from Spain in the early 19th century. He went into exile dying in France. He was noted as the Liberator of what would become Argentina, Chile, and Perú. After his death he was buried in the Metropolitan Cathedra. Every day his tomb is protected by Granaderos guards.
