The capital of Argentina was named “Espíritu Santo y Puerto Santa María del Buen Ayre” by its founder Don Pedro de Mendoza in 1536. It is now one of South America’s most influential cities.
Buenos Aires is often referred to as “the Paris of South America” due to its fine European architecture with many buildings designed in a French style. This energetic, clean and safe port city seduces its visitors with its multicultural charm and passion for life!
It is definitely a city of culture with a high number of museums, theatres, concerts, festivals, art galleries, bars & clubs, cinemas and special events offered at all hours, all year long.
Buenos Aires, the Cosmopolitan City of Tango
The Teatro Colón is recognised as one of the world’s greatest opera houses and is host to all genres of music, not just Tango! Yet it is the national dance of the Tango that exemplifies the spirit of Argentina.
Argentinian tango is practiced everywhere, in dance halls, parks, open plazas, and ballrooms. It is a dance of intimate separation and common rhythm, combining both an elegant reserve and an exuberant passion.
If you are looking for a destination of diversity and passion, Buenos Aires is truly an exciting city to learn – and live – the South American Spanish language and culture.
