Overview

9 de Julio Avenue is to Buenos Aires what the Champs Elysees is to Paris - if you have not walked along 9 de Julio Avenue, you have not truly experienced the city. Some of the city's most significant landmarks are right along or on this street, including the Obelisk and Teatro Colón. Honoring Argentina's Independence Day (July 9, 1816), the name of the street is pregnant with meaning. Argentinians take pride in the fact that 9 de Julio Avenue is probably the widest street in the world. Crossing this avenue means crossing three intersections. Some like to run through the lights to see who makes it through the quickest. What's the hurry? Take your time to enjoy the historic avenue.
