Plaza de Mayo, {CATEGORY}

Juan de Garay founded the historic core of Buenos Aires, the Plaza de Mayo, upon the city's second founding in 1580. The plaza's prominent buildings create an architectural timeline: the Cabildo, or Old City Hall, and Metropolitan Cathedral are vestiges of the colonial period (18th and early 19th c)., while the Pirámide de Mayo (Pyramid of May) and the buildings of the national and local government reflect the styles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the center of the plaza, you'll find palm trees, fountains, and benches. Though many of these facilities are in need of an upgrade, the plaza is still full of local people at lunchtime, chatting and eating takeout food. Surrounding the government and union offices are structures built in the mid-20th century that are less interesting. However, they typify the severe Fascist style popular in South America at the time, with their smooth surfaces and enormous Roman-style metal doors. Plaza de Mayo remains the political heart of Buenos Aires, serving as a forum for protests with many camping out here overnight. The mothers of the desaparecidos, victims of the military dictatorship's campaign against leftists, known as the Dirty War, have demonstrated here since 1976. An absolute must-see for understanding Argentina's recent history, you can watch them march, speak, and set up information booths every Thursday afternoon at 3:30pm. Mass demonstrations are very common here, and most protests begin in front of the Casa Rosada (now separated from the crowds by permanent barricades) and proceed up Avenida de Mayo toward Congreso. For the most part, these demonstrations are peaceful, usually led by people who have suffered the economic consequences of the peso crisis, known as piqueteros. However, at times, protests have broken into violence, so be aware when demonstrations are occurring and leave immediately if things seem to be getting out of hand. A major renovation of this Plaza was presented to the public in 2007, which would have severely altered pedestrian traffic flow and removed seating, largely to prevent people from gathering here, though that was never the stated reason. The plan, which was to have commenced in 2008 in time for the 2010 Bicentennial, has not however been enacted as of this writing.
