A beautiful place

Puerto Madero is the newest district of Buenos Aires. Located by to borders of the river, with an ample supply of commercial and gastronomical attractions. One part of the zone of Puerto Madero grows incessantly, extending the supply of houses and offices. Every day there are more people who choose to live a meter away form the river. The district is a zone intensely visited by tourists.

In 1870 the economic situation of Buenos Aires was very good, already it was clear that the very old Buenos Aires port needed to turn into something more apt for the reception and the shipment of passengers and products.

Between 1876 and 1886 there were two suggestions with their projects for the renovation of the port ok Buenos Aires.
Much money was spent to make all the work and it took more than ten years to finish it. In 1897 the new port was inaugurated.
