Buenos Aires is Argentina's largest metropolitan area with a population of roughly 13 million, mostly of European heritage. Argentina has a rich historical memory of a past era of wealth and some turbulent times. Buenos Aires has many monuments, museums, opera houses, and of course, the graves of their beloved Eva Peron (Evita) and the most famous tango singer Carlos Gardel. If you visit Buenos Aires you must watch a live tango show! Buenos Aires is a stunning city filled with French Colonial architecture and giant sycamore trees. The Argentines are magnificent cooks, putting together their earthy, strong, yet tasty, red wine usually accompanied with a fine cut of the thickest juiciest beef, cooked on the traditional wood burning brick "asados" (barbeques).
