Barrancas de Belgrano, the centennial park of Buenos Aires where tango is danced on the elegant wrought-iron bandstand, is also not to be missed. Parque Centenario is a lovely open-air area with a fountain in the middle of it. It is famous for its murals and various sculptures and surrounded by scientific institutions and some museums.
Jardín Japonés is one of the world's largest Japanese gardens. Along the paths sakura, azaleas, and Japanese maples can be seen. Enjoy a zen moment here!
