Profile: Balvanera

Profile: Balvanera

Balvanera is usually referred to as three distinct sub-neighborhoods—Abasto, Congreso, and Once. Located in west Buenos Aires, Balvanera offers many shopping options, whether you’re into outlets, boutiques, or gallerias. For a family-friendly day, take the metro to Abasto de Buenos Aires, one of the biggest and busiest malls in the city.

The 80-meter tower of the Congreso Nacional, which houses the legislative branch of the Argentine government, is a sight to behold. Its Greco-Roman columns bestow a grand entrance to the Senate. In front of the building is the Plaza del Congreso, a green space containing various monuments.
