Plaza de Mayo square, was built in the 16th century and at the eastern end you can find the Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace. Opposite to the Casa Rosada you can see the wonderful former Spanish town hall, the Cabildo, a fascinating old colonial building fronted by arches.
It is here where the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo, a group of mothers who protest the loss of their loved ones who dissapeared during the argentinian dictatorship, gather in a regular basis, hoping to receive answer from the justice or the government to their suffering.
As you will notice Plaza de Mayo it’s an important spot for the argentinian society and also to the governors, because this is the place where sometimes they give their most famous speeches or celebrate when they are elected.
Of course, the access to this square is free of charge.
