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.

It is in the middle of a large square on the Avenida Libertadores in the Palermo barrio, not far from the Japanese Garden. Impressive monument dedicated to Freedom and to the Argentinian constitution, also known as the monument at the Carta Magna. It boasts a beautiful fountain as well.

Unfortunately, you cannot get close to examine this detailed monument as it is in the middle of a very busy roundabout. Each of the four regions of Argentina is represented at the base. It is located near other attractions such as Bosques de Palermo and other parks.

Beautiful monument in a roundabout and parks. Nice to view the monument from different views. Lots of traffic but worth the change to see this monument.

This is a nice monument in the middle of Ave Libertador, which is a very busy street in Buenos Aires. It honors the Four Regions in Argentina and it's nice to look at and good for photos.
It is very well maintained and surrounded by a nice fountain. It's not something I would seek out but worth a look if you happen to be walking around in Palermo.

Monumento de los Espanoles
Monumento de los Espanoles means ‘Monument from the People of Spain’, of course to the people of Argentine which was donated by Spanish people living in Argentine, in 1910 at the time of Centenary Celebrations of May 1810 which marks the formal beginning of Argentina's independence from Spain. It is also called the Monument to the Carta Magna and Four Regions of Argentina (El Plata, La Pampa, Los Andes and El Chaco.) It is located in a big squire in front of Rose Garden in Palermo area of Buenos Aires, on the intersection of Avenue Del Libertador and Avenue Gen. Sarmiento. It is a huge landmark with an enormous statue that represents "The Republic", in front of Buenos Aires Zoo and one must pass by it when going through the garden-like posh neighborhood of BA.
It was built entirely in bronze and Carrara marble. The sculpture was started in 1910 and finalized in 1927 after a number of delaying incidents. It is 24.5-metre-high (80 ft) marble and brass monument was inaugurated on March 13, 1927, with a speech by the Argentina president Marcelo T. de Alvear. It is one of the most beautiful and largest monuments of BA.

Nice stop between the park and the botanical gardens and there is a kids playground nearby. Not something I would seek out on its own but the park would make me stop in the area so it is worth a look.

Visited during our tour for a photo stop. The Monument to the Carta Magna and Four Regions of Argentina is located in the intersection of Del Libertador and Sarmiento Avenues. It was a donation from the Spanish community in celebration of the centenary of the Revolución de Mayo of 1810. It was built entirely in bronze and Carrara marble and finalised in 1927.

At its top is a symbolic statue of the republic with allegoric marble representations of labor and work at its base, and bronze figures that represent the Andes, Pampa, Chaco and de la Plata regions. Its inscriptions include a fragment of the Argentine constitution that proclaims freedom for the country and for any person in the world who wishes the make Argentina their home and also four statements that proclaim the brotherhood of Argentina and Spain, their people, their language and their destiny.
