It is also the place where the city was founded for the second time, on June 11, 1580 by Juan de Garay. In the center of the square is the May Pyramid, a monument built in 1811 to celebrate the centenary of the Revolution and that was reformed in 1856 by the artist and architect Prilidiano Pueyrredón. The monument to Manuel Belgrano, creator of the national flag, is located between the May Pyramid and the Government House.
