Plaza Mitre And Monumento De Mitre - City Plaza Buenos Aires - Argentina

If walking from Palermo to Recoleta, be sure to go along Avenida del Libertador so you can stop at the magnificent Plaza Mitre. Although on a noisy main road, the plaza manages to maintain a sense of calm, and is a favorite for locals to sunbathe or have a picnic in the summer. The centerpiece is a striking hilltop statue of General Bartolomé Mitre who, as every Argentine schoolchild knows, was a significant military leader and president of Argentina (1862-1868). Sadly, the monument is today littered with graffiti, but don’t let this distract you from its splendor.
