The avenue is located in the center of the city, connecting the north with the south from Plaza Constitución to Avenida Libertador.
A stroll along the avenue
One of the most characteristic features of Avenida 9 de Julio is the Obelisk, located in the Plaza de la República. It is a 67-meter-high concrete structure inaugurated in 1936 to celebrate the fourth centennial of the founding of the city. This construction is the reason why the square is also known as the "Plaza del Obelisco" (Obelisk Square).
Along the tree-lined Avenida 9 de Julio you can find numerous places of interest such as Teatro Colón, Constitución railway station and the beautiful Belle Époque style building of the French Embassy.
