Immerse yourself in 200 years of history by hearing the stories of each building in Plaza de Mayo with your private guide, and learn more about Buenos Aires foundational square.

You will learn about the Spanish colonial era and how it came to be the centre of their viceroyalty, with their seat at the Cabildo. Travel back in time to the May Revolution that started in 1810 and led to independence from the Spanish in 1816. Walking around the square, you will see the most emblematic buildings that have played a role in Argentina's history, from Eva Peron and her famous speech from the balcony of Casa Rosada to the demonstrations of the Madres and Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo.

At the far end of the Cabildo, you will see Casa Rosada, Argentina's Presidents’ office painted in a pink colour that holds a very distinctive role as a symbol of the country. Your last stop will be Museo del Bicentenario (only open weekends), where your guide will tell you stories of Argentina's past presidencies.
