Photographer's Note

One thing I really like in Buenos Aires is the presence of many places like that. The Plazas (Squares) are all clean and well maintained and the most I visit are secure too.

Here we were at Plaza Liberdad. It is a public square located in the Retiro district. Located on Calle Cerrito, next to 9 de Julio Avenue, has on its side the Coliseo Theatre and the modern Plaza Liberdad Building. In the underground works a municipal parking station.

It is one of the oldest squares of Buenos Aires. It was only in 1822 that the name to Plaza Libertad was chose where is located to monument to Adolfo Alsina made by the French artist Aimé Millet.

During the 1950s and 1970s, the environment around the Liberty Plaza was completely changed, when old buildings and houses of French and Italian styles that surrounded it were demolished and replaced by towers and modern apartment buildings.

Others plazas we visited:

Plaza Mitre
Plaza Mayo
Plaza Sicilia I and Plaza Sicilia II
Plaza Fuerza
Plaza Lavalle
Plaza de las Naciones Unidas
