The Obelisco de Buenos Aires (Obelisk of Buenos Aires) is a national historic monument and icon of Buenos Aires. Located in the Plaza de la República in the intersection of avenues Corrientes and 9 de Julio, it was erected in 1936 to commemorate the quadricentennial of the first foundation of the city.
Beautiful monument. Nice for taking pics. Beautiful architecture in Argentina.
Argentina 🇦🇷 Buenos Aires All People Beautiful Like Enjoy 👍😃👌😘
Beautiful place to visit. In the centre of the city. Near everything. One of the must visit things in Buenos Aires. The place is fantastic to take pictures. Everything can be visited from here. It id not possible to enter on it, but the place is very centric and cool.
Love it. Iconic. Kinda unsafe when visiting late. But no problems.

Beautiful monument in Buenos Aires symbolizing independence and freedom. May 25th is the independence day for Argentina and the whole area around the Obelisco gets shut down. No car traffic but everyone walking and having a good time.
A must-see in Buenos Aires. At walking distance from Teatro Colon (where you can book guided tours), and from other touristic places. Subway and bus connections with several iconic points in the city.
U can't miss it! A must see! The place to be to confirm you are in Buenos Aires
Our capitol’s landmark! If you wanna visit it I’d recommend a walk to it or just driving by.
Obelisco was a vibrant part of Buenos Aires with a great nightlife and restaurants and Starbucks and other coffee shops and the largest Anenue in the world not to mention the obelisk like the one in Washington DC.
It’s an historical place, a must go in the first time you are in BA. Nothing especial tho, it’s not well cared to be honest. It’s nicer in the days ends, when the sunsets, gives it beautiful colors.
Very nice in both the daytime and night time. It is lit up in the evening when it starts to get dark. It's a busy and popular place to go especially as the Olympic rings and the B A sign are close by too. It appears as though it is now used to house satellites, it certainly has the height for that.
A very good place just like qutab minat in Delhi , India. I donot know the history behind obelisco however it's a treat to watch and get clicked in the evening.
The center of Buenos Aires, from there you go anywhere in downtown. Few block you have a minibus station that will take you almost any main point in the city of Big Buenos Aires for less money than a taxi. Look for "Terminal de Combis Obelisco" there is one that also will take you to the Ezeiza Airport.
Historic place, but nothing special to see... Nevertheless, it is indeed a Buenos Aires City architectural icon... if you're strolling around the area wouldn't hurt to check it out.
Interesting monument located in very busy intersection so it's hard to get up close. When there take a walk down the theatre boulevard. They are installing Argentinian theatre stars in the sidewalks.
Wonderful place to enjoy Buenos Aires landmarks. There's free WiFi network and in the night it's a good place to take a rest and enjoy ... It's a busy time on Fridays night
Located at heart of the city, Good for selfie photo ;) You can notice lot of tourists taking the photos, Some times there may be strike from unions near this place, which makes the traffic a real mess. You can connect to free WiFi which is available here.
It's a nice place to take a good pictures and selfies. You may see nice stores and food stall in the area. also, they usually set lights on the Obelisco that allows you to have a nice view even during night hours. Nowadays, the surroundings are occupied by several beggars. You can see the from several places even a bit far from it.
