Buenos Aires is a very European city, why’s that?The Argentine Aristocracy from the late XVIII Century wanted Buenos Aires to be a Latin Paris. Their desire was so big, that there are entire buildings made out of French materials. Of course they all were wealthy people who owned big extensions of land, or big companies.Now those amazing European palaces belong to different owners, embassies, the state, or private companies.All this palaces and mentions are located in the north of the city, were the wealthy people lives. There is an amazing contrast between the south, where all the immigrants neighborhoods used to be.These are some examples:Image and video hosting by TinyPicFrench embassyImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicUS embassyCulture palaceImage and video hosting by TinyPicAnchorena Palace, now international relationships buildingImage and video hosting by TinyPicCustoms buildingThis is now the Decorative Art museum.Image and video hosting by TinyPicDecorative Art museumImage and video hosting by TinyPicDecorative art museum ball roomEven in the streets, you can see random construction with French aspects.Image and video hosting by TinyPicSan telmoThis is the English tower, or monumental tower.
