For some cities, a single article to describe all of the attractions of the city. Buenos Aires (eng. Buenos Aires) does not apply to such cities as the city this very large, which is to be the capital of Argentina, and it has its own charm and character. The city consists of several districts, each of which has its own style. The main areas of the city-La Boca, San Telmo, Retiro, Recoleta and so on. My acquaintance with the city began with the District of Palermo (eng. Palermo). It is this area of town me and liked the most. Why is it, I will try to pass photographs and video.

Palermo (eng. Palermo) in Buenos Aires. Video

Besides all the photos and the article, I suggest also show a video that helps even more to introduce the area of Buenos Aires, if you haven’t been here. Many who come to Argentina for permanent residence prefer to buy property here, but real estate prices here relative to other areas can be described as above average.
