The city of Buenos Aires is located at the northeastern edge of the flat plain known as the Pampas, which occupies the agricultural heartland of Argentina as its shown in Buenos Aires map. It is situated at the point where the Paraná River delta widens to become the Río de la Plata estuary. The eastern and northern limits of the metropolitan area are defined by the Río de la Plata, and the city most prominent physical characteristics are the numerous small rivers that flow through its periphery. The centre of the city lies on a bluff overlooking the Río de la Plata, and to the south flows a small river, the Riachuelo, the banks of which mark the other higher ground in the city. The rest of the city is laid out on the floodplains of the rivers, virtually without significant elevations.
Administrative units of the Buenos Aires metropolitan region are called partidos (counties); each county is governed by an elected mayor and a municipal council (see Buenos Aires map). Coordinated governance of the Buenos Aires metropolitan region is complicated by the lack of any interjurisdictional governing body. The National Commission of the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area was set up by the federal government in the late 1980s to harmonize the separate administrations of the central city, Buenos Aires province, and the counties. Its efforts have been largely ineffectual.
Buenos Aires is often described as Latin America most European city as its mentioned in Buenos Aires map. The population is made up largely of the descendants of immigrants from Spain and Italy who came to Argentina in the late 19th or early 20th century. Porteños, and Argentinians in general, tend to consider themselves European in character rather than Latin American. Moreover, porteños see themselves as having an identity that is quite distinct from those of other Argentinians and Latin Americans as a whole. Porteños are generally extroverted, sophisticated, animated, and on the forefront of the latest trends and fashions, yet their attitudes are tinged with pessimism or fatalism about the direction of their country or the latest economic problems.

The city centre or Buenos Aires downtown is built on the original colonial foundation. It has narrow streets laid out at right angles to form a grid pattern. This rectilinear pattern holds for more than 20 square blocks, an area that defined the limits of the city until the late 19th century. Since that time, expansion has been less planned, and the pattern of streets is less regular. The centre is the site of most major financial institutions and corporate headquarters as you can see in Buenos Aires downtown map. The center of Buenos Aires, also known as Downtown Buenos Aires or Centro, is not one neighborhood but rather an area made up of the San Nicolás, Balvanera and Montserrat neighborhoods. The sum of these three neighborhoods adds up to a rich diversity of space, contrasting architectural styles, historic places and cultural, gastronomical and commercial experiences.
The modern city of Buenos Aires developed outward from the Plaza de Mayo, a historic square flanked by the Cabildo (Town Hall) on the western end of the square, which dates from the 18th century, and the Government House, commonly called the Casa Rosada (“Pink House”), on the eastern end as you can see in Buenos Aires downtown map. The Casa Rosada faces west, up the broad Avenida de Mayo, which leads directly to Plaza del Congreso and the National Congress building, constructed in the early 20th century. All distances on national highways are measured from the zero-kilometre point in the small square across from the building.
The center of Buenos Aires, also referred to as the micro-center or downtown, is quite busy during working hours with people coming in and out of the many government offices and shopping stores in the neighborhood. On nights and weekends many shops and restaurants close and the area becomes significantly quieter. El Centro is home to some of the major sights in Buenos Aires, sights that are symbols of Argentina as its shown in Buenos Aires downtown map. Visit each one of the highlights mentioned below, and enjoy all the shopping Buenos Aires has to offer. The area referred to as El Centro is really broken up into a number of separate neighborhoods. These include Montserrat, San Nicolas, Retiro and Puerto Madero.
