tango in Buenos Aires


Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina is very appropriately located in the east of the country, closest to its brave fore bearers on the European continent. Buenos Aires is probably the most European city in South America.

When it was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1536, it was originally called "Ciudad de la Santísima Trinidad y Puerto de Santa María del Buen Aire" (City of the Most Holy Trinity and Port of Saint Mary of the Fair Winds). 

Today, this beautiful city of fair winds, located on the banks of the Rio de la Plata, welcomes visitors from all over the world. By the late 19th Century, Buenos Aires had become a true world metropolis, and was even known as the Paris of the South.

There is no end of things to do in this exciting city: stroll through the neighborhoods of elegant homes, architecturally stunning historic buildings and pretty parks, visit the many museums, take in a theater show or a cultural event, eat and drink at its wonderful restaurants and cafes. And of course, dance the Tango.

The Tango was introduced to Argentina at the end of the 19th Century, with European immigrants who were arriving at that time.

It was, in fact, a native of Toulouse, France, with a Spanish name, Carlos Gardel, who became the most famous voice of the Tango, and is particularly responsible for its widespread popularity. If the rhythm, sensuality and beauty of the Tango calls to you, there are many Tango neighborhoods where the dance can always be seen and enjoyed.
