Travel five hundred years in the span of just a few blocks through the historic center of Buenos Aires. Follow the city's transformation from a remote Spanish colonial outpost to the cosmopolitan capital of an independent nation.

You’ll learn how Spanish colonial society relied on a rigid social and racial hierarchy and how bitterly divided Argentina was after the country gained its independence from Spain. You’ll visit the resting place of General José de San Martín, known as the Liberator of Argentina who crossed the Andes with a contingent of five thousand men to fight loyalist Spanish forces in Chile and Peru.

The Heart of Colonial Buenos Aires tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
