Worth to visit as historic place. Casa Rosada , where the president works is there and it's possible to visit it on week ends. You can also visit Evita's Balcony. You can also visit the Cathedral and The Cabildo ( one of the first buildings in the city) importante because there our first goverment, independent from Spain, was proclaimed. All the policitar and workers movements took place there.

Lots of interesting sights and plenty of history to observe. Went through as part of a walking tour and on the tour bus with both presenting alot of information about the history of the plaza. Definitely worth seeing.

This is the park with the hughest amount of history. The house where the president sits, the Cathedral, Cabildo where independence was proclaimed, the pyramid where the Mothers walked around in their famous march, and all this right in the middle of the city. Don't forget to take a walk along Av. de Mayo to the park where the Congress is. Lots of interesting buildings, cafés, and history. Take your time because there's a great chance that you'll bump into a protest somewhere along this tour. You don't need to be paranoid, it's a safe area, but always take good care of your belongings, wallet, purses, cameras, etc.

History has been made here, it was the Plaza Mayor of the Spanish Colonial City set down in 1580. The Cathedral, City Hall (current) and Cabildo (Colonial City Hall), the Government House (Pink House), and National Bank surround it, Tall palm trees, an "obelisk" dating back to the 1810 Revolution that freed Argentina from Spanish rule.

This is where the mothers/widows of the disparacidos/the disappeared would come to grieve during the dark period of Argentina's past. When we were there there were demonstrations against government corruption and lack of action regarding an arson attack. Definitely worth a visit.
