Buenos Aires benefits from a very nice weather all year round. As it is a city from the Southern Hemisphere, seasons are inverted compared to most parts of the globe: winter goes from June to September and summer from December to March.

Palacio Barolo - Art Nouveau in Buenos Aires

Back at the end of the 19th century and during the first decades of the 20th century, Buenos Aires was one of the most important and wealthiest capital cities in the world. It is a common grandmother tale in porteña’s families that when children wouldn’t eat, they were told to “think about people starving in Europe” and finish their plate.

With the help of AANBA, the Buenos Aires Art Nouveau Association, the city is now focusing on bringing out the beauties of this architectural style.
