The tour of the city of Buenos Aires includes the following destinations:
Plaza de Mayo: it is the site on which the city was founded. It is located in the microcenter and in its surroundings is the Government House, or Casa Rosada, the Cabildo and the Cathedral of the city. Cathedral: it has undergone various modifications over the years and is one of the most striking buildings due to its large façade that features twelve columns that symbolize the twelve apostles. Inside the Cathedral is the marble mausoleum that houses the grave of General José de San Martín.
Cabildo: for centuries it was the site where the city authorities were concentrated. Part of its facade was demolished for the expansion of Avenida de Mayo and Diagonal Sur, removing six of its eleven arches.
Government House: it is the seat of the Executive Power of the Argentine Nation since 1862. The facade is characterized by its particular pink color, and by the lack of symmetry as a consequence of the partial demolition of the south wing in 1938. This building is also called Pink House.

La Boca: located in the south of the city and bordering the Riachuelo, this neighborhood offers the unique Caminito street; a museum street and a traditional passage of great cultural and tourist value, which acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music of the famous tango Caminito (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto.
