Join Maru or Vicky, two historians, educators and activists, to learn about Argentina's most fascinating and daunting movement: Peronism. You will explore the context behind the rise of this political figure and how we carved up a movement that is still active 50 years after his death. Explore the life of famed First Lady Evita Perón and discover the answers to the questions: was Perón a Nazi? Is Peronism left wing or right wing? What even is Peronism? In this tour we'll explore the Evita Perón Museum as well as many landmarks for Peronist history.
In this tour we'll navigate the landmarks of Peronism, including Perón Square, Plaza de Mayo, the main Union building of the Peronist era, the Evita Perón Foundation, a Peronist Theme bar (yes, really!), the Health Ministry and the Evita Perón Museum.
