Buenos Aires is a great metropolis with eleven million inhabitants and one of the largest in the world. It is also the most elegant and busiest city in South America and is in some way the essence of the variety of the Argentine.
While there has been a flurry of modern construction and dynamic activity, it has managed to preserve old traditions and charming corners. One is fascinated by the atmosphere, the individual personality of each of its neighbourhoods, the cordiality of its people and the wide selection of its cultural and commercial opportunities. Buenos Aires, close to the splendid countryside surrounding it, is the great cosmopolitan doorway to South America.
