Known as Microcentro, the financial center of Buenos Aires is considered by Porteños as one of the city's neighborhoods even though it is not officially recognized as such.

The district is comprised of an area of approximately 60 blocks that are filled with offices, stores and banks. It is defined by Avenida Córdoba and Avenida de Mayo.

Despite being the most central neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Microcentro has hardly any residents, since most of the buildings are offices. It is estimated that almost 4 million people work in the area, so it is usually a busy area during working hours.

Plenty of sites to see

The central neighborhood of Microcentro is an area highly frequented by tourists due to its large number of attractions. Among the places to visit in the neighborhood are Plaza de Mayo, the Illuminated Block, the Church of San Ignacio de Loyola and the Museum of the City.

We recommend visiting this area during the day, as it is very inactive at night.
