You can pass here and take a photo. Nothing else really going on at this site but it’s near other things

Actual beautiful monument on the main avenue of Buenos Aires built in 1936, actually where a precious demolished church was located. Worth the visit. Lots of other great sights in that area.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
