Buenos Aires - Congreso & Tribunales (Chapter)
This is the Congreso & Tribunales chapter from Lonely Planet's Buenos Aires guidebook.
Congreso is an interesting neighbourhood full of old-time cinemas, theaters and bustling commerce tinged with a hard-core political flavor. The buildings still hold a European aura, but there’s more local feel, faded-glory atmosphere and grittiness than in the Center. It’s a great place to wander around and explore.
