Cabildo de Buenos Aires

Bolívar 65, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1066

The basics

Thanks to its prominent position on Plaza de Mayo, the Cabildo of Buenos Aires features on just about every sightseeing tour in town, though not all tours take you inside. The museum inside is worth a look for its collection of artifacts, documents, and interactive exhibits on the city’s history–from the Spanish colonial period through independence. Visitors can access the former jail or take in the views of the historic plaza from the second-floor balcony.
