Buenos Aires is situated on one side of the largest estuary in the world, the ‘Rio de la Plata’ and has gained lots of importance during the industrial revolution, exporting goods such as the famous beef. European immigration brought with it a significant population growth & wealth.
One of the many sights worth visiting is the ‘Casa Rosada’ at the ‘Plaza de Mayo’: the pink villa where the Argentine president resides, also known for Evita Peróns famous resignation speech on the balcony.
