JARDINES DE PALERMO

With over 80 hectares, the Jardines de Palermo (the famous gardens in this neighbourhood) is one of the largest green spaces in the city. Construction began in 1874 on the initiative of President Domingo F. Sarmiento. Notable architects, as Oldendorf, Mauduit, Wysocky and Dormal, and landscape architects Carlos Thays, worked on  the design and refurbishment.

You can walk along romantic rose gardens, monuments and statues; you can also sail on a boat or visit the Japanese garden, the Zoo and one of our favorite modernist buildings, the Planetarium.

Stop for the best ice-cream at Persicco and Volta.
