The sights in Puerto Madero

This district is next to the city centre, in the bay of La Plata River. Therefore, there is a beautiful waterfront promenade, squares and parks, wide streets and modern high-rise buildings. Puerto Madero was originally a port, but in the early 90s, it was rebuilt, and the area’s appearance completely changed.

Today Puerto Madero is an elite city district, so the prices for rental property and products will be much higher here. Another district’s feature is no public transport, so a taxi is the only way to move within the community.
