Cobblestone streets lead to rows of colorful houses, restaurants with tango performances, romantic bridges and well-maintained parks in Buenos Aires. The city is full of old buildings with classic architecture from the 16th century to the mid-20th century, many of which are heavily influenced by the Europeans who migrated there during that time. All in all, it’s a city brimming with places that look amazing through a lens.
Also built in the ’60s, the Japanese Garden was inaugurated to coincide with a visit by the 125th Japanese emperor, Akihito. If a word had to be chosen to describe the gardens, it would be harmonious. A diverse selection of plants, koi fish and Japanese bridges and sculptures make this one of the best places to fill up your feed with amazing pictures.
This historic street used to house immigrants from the early-20th century. Surrounded by a booming neighborhood, the original cobblestones of the passageway persist to this day. With exquisite light during the day and subtle street lamps during the night, this one makes for good low-light imagery.
This rotating bridge in one of the most exclusive parts of Buenos Aires was inaugurated in 2001 and has become one of the most famous landmarks of Puerto Madero. This one is great for wide shots with either morning or sunset light.
Plaza Cortázar (formerly Plaza Serrano) is surrounded by some of the hippest bars, restaurants and a thriving night scene, but it is also a perfect place for a quiet stroll on the surrounding streets. There you can find many examples of local street art, boutique fashion stores and even historic buildings. A craft fair opens during the weekend. The three passageways surrounding Plaza Cortázar – Soria, Russel and Santa Rosa – are perfect for pictures. With cobblestones and low buildings flanked by amazing street art, there’s no way a photo taken on these streets doesn’t end up in a tsunami of likes!
