The high rises connote the familiar image of modernity, looming over neo-classical architectural designs of celebrated streets and neighborhoods in which locals and visitors reminisce of a city once referred to as the Paris of South America. A herbaceous aroma emanates from the sycamore trees lining the tranquil, elegant avenues of the Recoleta district as the sounds of tango enrich the colorful corrugated houses of the La Boca neighborhood.
