The Obelisk of Buenos Aires

Great Based on 12,305 ratings

This is one needle you won’t have trouble finding – mainly because it’s slap-bang in the middle of the city’s main avenue. Pointing to the heavens like a primordial monolith, it’s a rallying point for porteño crowds. Time your visit right and you’ll see masses swarming round the obelisk to sing hymns, wave placards or whoop deliriously at football victories.
