Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 1
Argentina's Parisian ambitions have been bumped and bruised, but a major gathering late in 2017 to celebrate the LGBT community suggests that culturally the city may not be far off its target. We're at the Plaza de Mayo, created when an arcade was demolished in the 1880s and one plaza created out of two. In the middle stands the Pyramid de Mayo, created in 1811 to celebrate the revolutionary war begun a year earlier. For a city created in 1580, 1811 may not seem very old, but the pyramid is actually one of the oldest things in the city. Behind it is the Casa Rosada, the much more recent presidential office.
