Casa Rosada, also known as the Presidential Palace, is located on the east side of the Plaza de Mayo and is a Spanish-style rose-colored building. In 1873, President Sarmiento painted the presidential palace pink, because red was the color of the federalist at that time, white was the color of its opposition, and the two colors became pink together, also symbolizing the unity of political factions.

Cemetery
Open from 7:30am-5:30pm (Local time)
A cemetery for the stars, this graveyard is the final resting place for some of Argentina's most notorious and beloved citizens, including Raúl Alfonsín, Eva Perón, and a number of presidents. First built around a convent and church, the cemetery became part of a wealthy neighborhood after upper-class Argentinians fled to Recoleta during the 1870s yellow fever epidemic. Today, the cemetery contains elaborate mausoleums, statues and tombs - most in good shape, although a few have succumbed to the ravages of time. Tree-lined walkways allow visitors to stroll leisurely through the area.

Bridge
Open 24 hours (Local time)
Designed by world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, the only work he's done in South America, Puente de la mujer (Bridge of the Woman) is a sight that shouldn't be missed by any visitor to Buenos Aires. The 335-foot-long pedestrian bridge connects both sides of the upscale Puerto Madero, which is separated by an artificial canal. This beautifully astounding structure was engineered in such a way so the central portion of the bridge is enabled to open at a 90-degree angle to allow for easy passage of mid-sized water traffic. Inspired by the Latin dance know as the Tango, Calatrava's design abstractly resembles a couple moving to Argentina's most sensual type of dancing.

Church
Monday-Friday 8:00-17:00; Sunday 9:00-19:30 (Local time)
Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral was built in the early 16th century and it looked rather rudimentary at that time, so it was later rebuilt repeatedly. The current building is a mixture of several architectural styles, with 18th century central walkways and domes, and 19th century neoclassical facades without a bell tower. The interior retains precious sculptures and altar pieces from the 18th century, as well as beautiful new Renaissance and neo-Baroque decorations.
