Located in front of La Casa Rosada, the executive house of Argentina, La Plaza de Mayo has seen its fair share of political upheaval and energy. This is where the 1810 revolution that led to independence happened. This is where demonstrations in 1945 forced the release from prison of Perón, Argentina's most famous president. This is where Las Madres, who demand justice for their children who went missing during the Dirty War, continue to march every Tuesday. This is where Argentines spontaneously gathered in mourning after former President Nestór Kirchner's death in 2007. La Plaza de Mayo is the political center of the city, and a trip to Buenos Aires would be incomplete without a visit to this historical and political landmark.
