The iconic avenida 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires, one of the widest avenues in the world, bears the name of the Argentinian Independence Day: July 9th 1816. The huge avenue adorned with monuments was designed in 1930 and modelled on the boulevards of Paris. It runs through Buenos Aires on a North/South axis.
Among the splendid monuments which decorate it is the Obelisk (67m), a great symbol of Buenos Aires which was erected in 1936 for the 400th anniversary of the foundation of the city. The Teatro Colón, the splendid opera house dating from 1908, is another notable landmark on the avenida 9 de Julio.
Visitors shouldn't miss a glimpse of the avenue at night when the buildings and monuments are lit up with thousands of lights.
