Neighborhood: Palermo
Overview

The Hippodrome in the neighborhood of Palermo opened its doors in 1876, with typical architecture of the Belle Époque period. Its elliptical shape contours the three racetracks. In 1908, a grandstand and tree-shaded areas, lakes and Carrara marble sculptures were added for a touch of elegance. The renowned 3000-metre distance Gran Premio República Argentina and the 1600-metre Gran Premio de las Américas are the outstanding annual races held here. The grandstand frequently fills with crowds. There is a cafeteria on the grounds as well.
