The City of Buenos Aires was founded in 1580 by Juan de Garay although in 1536 there was a first settlement made by Pedro de Mendoza and abandoned in 1541 due to the constant siege of the natives. It belonged to the Viceroyalty of Peru of the Spanish Empire. In 1810 the inhabitants of the city rebelled, initiating the war for the independence of Argentina. It is currently one of the most modern cities in South America with an incredible cultural and leisure offer that perfectly combines tradition and modernity that we invite you to discover.

THE CAFÉS OF BUENOS AIRES
The Tortoni is the paradigm of the Buenosairean coffee and was founded by a French immigrant at the end of 1858 who borrowed the name of an establishment in Paris in which the elite of the nineteenth century Parisian culture met. The place was always frequented by many artists who gave a halo of luster and fame to coffee. Halo that still keeps looking like the time had stopped like in a daguerreotype when in it people still play billiards, cards or just have a coffee among friends. Find where to stay if you want to visit this piece of Buenos Aires history.
Right in the neighborhood of La Recoleta and opposite the famous Plaza Francia is the traditional Café “La Biela” opened in 1850. It takes its name back in 1942 when it becomes an important meeting point for fans of motoring. Symbol also of a whole generation of intellectuals and protagonists of pop art of the 60s and 70s. I owned a large terrace of the early nineteenth century from where you can admire the wonderful Basilica of Our Lady of Pilar and observe a dreamy landscape of Parisian reminiscences. Enjoy this wonderful place staying in the apartments that BAHOUSE puts at your disposal.
