A HOTBED FOR DESIGN, COMBINED WITH A VAST CULTURAL HERITAGE, MAKES BUENOS AIRES ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING PLACES.

Swathed in a European cloak, the Argentine capital known for tango, Malbec wine and steakhouses is a distinct city of varied barrios. Stylish artists fill the cafes of Palermo, while Recoleta is an enclave for the upper class, with Parisian architecture. The cobbled streets of San Telmo feature colonial buildings that hum with a history of staggering romance and colonial charm.
