|About these ratings|
For a taste of Argentine's exuberant spirit, take a stroll along Corrientes Avenue. This is where tango dancers have congregated since the booming 1930's and where Broadway-esque performers riveted audiences. Cinemas and world-renowned theaters rub shoulders with charming bookstores and boutiques. Look up and you'll find a sky-high obelisk beaming above. Corrientes is also an idyllic spot for enjoying a churro and a cup of coffee as you people-watch from one of the area's European-style cafés. Apart from admiring the local architecture, particularly the monumental obelisk and the Colón Theater, you'll also find landscaped gardens, dazzling nightly tango performances, and plenty of nightlife.
One TripAdvisor user has some advice on how best to experience Corrientes: "Walk the length of the street down to obelisk to take in the full experience. Wonderful in daylight, but night time highlights the atmosphere of the avenue." Corrientes Avenue is located in Centro, just below Recoleta, and is easily reachable via subte Line D to Tribunales in Centro.
