It is the biggest urban center in the country. With its metropolitan area, (Great Buenos Aires) it is the second biggest conglomerate in Southamerica and one of the most important urban centers in the world (with all the neighborhoods it reaches 12 million inhabitants). It has a very important cultural activity, full of museums, theatres, exhibitions and libraries, as well as a busy night life full of cafeterias, bars, restaurants and discos. Its exquisite and assorted gastronomy, offering a wide range of flavors and national and international dishes, is highlighted by its famous meat from La Pampa, which is served with excellent famous wines of the mountain range of Cuyo and other local vineyards.
You can easily witness the European immigrant's traces, going from the colorful neighborhood la Boca, to the French architecture in Palermo and Recoleta.
