Buenos Aires Eats

Stroll the Garden

Amid the sounds of snorting buses and zooming cars on Avenida Santa Fe, the Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays is a heaven-sent patch of leafy tranquillity that’s home to 5,500 species of plants (and nearly as many stray cats). Be sure to pay respect to the sculpture of Carlos Thays, Buenos Aires’s answer to Robert Moses, whose legacy of greenery and foliage is inescapable. If you have a wide enough lens, snap a photo of the giant araucaria tree at the south end of the Jardín Botánico.
