We did a long walk from Florida Street to la Boca and then back around to Plaza del Mayo where this statue is located. Plenty of tourists taking photos, including us!

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the

demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
