Travel Guide
Avellaneda which includes flowers and a bridge

This port city is close to Buenos Aires, home to theaters and sports clubs and a jumping-off point for exploring the Argentine capital.

Avellaneda is a prosperous commercial and industrial center, a port city close to Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires. Beyond the docks, textile mills, warehouses, oil refineries and processing plants is an array of attractions including theaters, sports grounds and an attractive plaza.

Relax with a strong cup of coffee in a pavement café near Plaza Alsina. Walk around the square and admire the large monument to Nicolás Avellaneda. He was a 19th-century president of Argentina. Watch city life pass by as you rest in one of the plaza’s curved stone chairs. Any children in your party will want to run, jump and swing in the playground.

The port city is ideal for lovers of the performing arts. Book seats for a play or concert at Teatro Roma or the Colonial Theater.

For sports entertainment you can see world-class soccer being played. Avellaneda is home to two major soccer teams: the Racing Club and Club Atlético Independiente. Watch them play at their respective stadiums within walking distance of each other. Argentina’s soccer season runs from August through May.

Visitors enjoy Avellaneda’s close proximity to some of the major attractions in Buenos Aires. The port is connected to the capital city by a number of bridges that cross over the Riachuelo River. Go to Lezama Park, a large green space with several statues and the Natural History Museum. Nearby is the Russian Orthodox Church with its blue domes.

Tour the decks and quarters of the ARA Presidente Sarmiento. The 19th-century former Argentine Navy training ship is now a floating museum docked in Puerto Madero, near the downtown area. See 19th-century frescoes of Biblical scenes and tiled mosaics at the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral. This is the principal Catholic church in the city.

Avellaneda is about 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) from the center of Buenos Aires. Visit on a daytrip or stay here as a base for exploring the rest of the Argentine capital.

Buen lugar, pero sin contacto para necesidades
"Muy buena habitación y lugar. Lo negativo era que al no ser una habitación del hotel (nos dijeron en recepción que era privada la habitación) no nos tomaban los reclamos o necesidades en la recepción y no teníamos ningun contacto a donde dirigirnos."
