Without any hesitation we can say that the most famous monument in Buenos Aires is the enormous Obelisk at the intersection of 9 de Julio and Corrientes avenues, which is the symbol of the city. It was created in May 1936 on the occasion of the 400th anniversary since the city was founded. The Obelisk is placed in the center of the Plaza de la República at the location of the first Argentina flag. It is 67 m tall and it takes about 49 m2. Not far from this monument Jorge Luis Borges' House is situated.
The best shops in Buenos Aires can be found in Calle Florida Street, which, by the way, is a pedestrian zone. But the street, along which take place lots of boutiques and shopping centers, can be interesting not only for its shops, but also for its architecture.
