Present in tours

It's gone midday, and we continue our itinerary in Puerto Madero, a good place for lunch. This regenerated portside neighbourhood blends old docks with modern skyscrapers and plenty of options for food.

On one side of the docks are the old red brick warehouses, now regenerated into modern apartments, offices and restaurants. On the other side are modern towers and five-star hotels, broadening the number of culinary options even more.. 

You can choose from Asian food, gourmet sandwiches, fastfood, steaks, or creative haute cuisine. Once replenished, head along the waterside and visit the historic ships moored on the docks: The A.R.A. Uruguay and the Sarmiento Frigate

The most famous bridge across the docks is the Puente de la Mujer, a modern, abstract construction representing a couple dancing tango. Across the water, you'll find the Fortabat art collection, housing works by artists such as Antonio Berni, Auguste Rodin and Andy Warhol in a state-of-the-art building.  

Another option is to continue walking to the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, an immense natural park in the very centre of the city, and home to many species of birds and native vegetation In front of the entrance, you'll find the Las Nereidas fountain, created by the sculptor Lola Mora.      

Free guided tours:

Every Wednesday and Sunday, there are free rowing excursions organised by the city tourist board allowing you to see the city from the water.
Every Sunday, there are free guided walking tours of Puerto Madero, explaining the neighbourhood's port history and more recent redevelopment.
