Buenos Aires - The Center & Puerto Madero (Chapter)
This is the Center & Puerto Madero chapter from Lonely Planet's Buenos Aires guidebook.
Buenos Aires’ Center is where bustle meets hustle and lines of business suits rush along the narrow streets in the shadow of skyscrapers and old European buildings. BA’s youngest and least conventional barrio, Puerto Madero is home to old brick warehouses converted into some of the city’s trendiest lofts, offices, hotels and restaurants.
