This was taken when I was leaving Buenos Aires for a week trip south. If you look to the bottom of the photo, you can see the famous cemetery of Recoleta. This is the cemetery where Eva Peron (otherwise known as Evita) is buried. As the picture shows, Buenos Aires is pretty built up. Recoleta is one of the neighbourhoods and is where the embassies are located. It has a completely different feel to eg La Boca or San Telmo. You can almost smell the wealth in the air. . . . . . . #RecoletaCemetery #aerialview #atlasobscura #igersbsas #ig_argentina #ig_buenosaires #igersargentina #buenosairescity #loves_argentina #loves_buenosaires #argentinaig #argentina_ig #visto_en_buenosaires #urbanosaires #vivirenbuenosaires #visitargentina #bairesgrams #asi_es_argentina #likebuenosaires #buenosairesciudad #argentina_illife #mybeautifulair #igers_argentina #vivabaires #igbuenosaires #travelbuenosaires #wonderlustbuenosaires #visitbuenosaires #hq_globe

It's a sculture made of steel and aluminum. The sculpture was designed to move, closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning.Β  It's not too far away from Recoleta Cemetery or MALBA. . . . . . . #FloralisGenerica #oversaturated #atlasobscura #igersbsas #ig_argentina #ig_buenosaires #igersargentina #buenosairescity #loves_argentina #loves_buenosaires #argentinaig #argentina_ig #visto_en_buenosaires #urbanosaires #vivirenbuenosaires #visitargentina #bairesgrams #asi_es_argentina #likebuenosaires #buenosairesciudad #argentina_illife #mybeautifulair #igers_argentina #vivabaires #igbuenosaires #travelbuenosaires #wonderlustbuenosaires #visitbuenosaires #hq_globe

Buenos Aires is home to the most beautiful bookstore in the world, the "El Ateneo Grand Splendid". It's one of the biggest bookstores in South America, and yes the building did originally house the theaterΒ Teatro Grand Splendid. The Grand Splendid was later converted into a movie theater in the late 1920’s. Finally the El Ateneo publishing house converted this old theater into a bookstore in 2000. It's an incredible building. Whilst I was visiting there was a new exhibition of photographs going up, I got speaking to one of the organisers and it turned out he was the actual photographer. If you haven't heard of @luismedici, please go to his gallery and show him some love. He is an awesome photographer. . . . . . . #ElAteneoGrandSplendid #bookshop #atlasobscura #igersbsas #ig_argentina #ig_buenosaires #igersargentina #buenosairescity #loves_argentina #loves_buenosaires #argentinaig #argentina_ig #visto_en_buenosaires #urbanosaires #vivirenbuenosaires #visitargentina #bairesgrams #asi_es_argentina #likebuenosaires #buenosairesciudad #argentina_illife #mybeautifulair #igers_argentina #vivabaires #igbuenosaires #travelbuenosaires #wonderlustbuenosaires #visitbuenosaires #hq_globe

This area is probably most famous for "el caminito" and the football stadium "La Bombonera" where Boca Juniors play. El Caminito is a street which is full of shops/bars/restaurants where the buildings are painted in very bright colours (like the ones in the photo). Its quite nice but very touristy. The area outside El Caminito area is quite run down. This is probably one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. The houses are low rise and quite worn down. . . . . . . #Elcaminito #colouroftheday #laboca #igersbsas #ig_argentina #ig_buenosaires #igersargentina #buenosairescity #loves_argentina #loves_buenosaires #argentinaig #argentina_ig #visto_en_buenosaires #urbanosaires #vivirenbuenosaires #visitargentina #bairesgrams #asi_es_argentina #likebuenosaires #buenosairesciudad #argentina_illife #mybeautifulair #igers_argentina #vivabaires #igbuenosaires #travelbuenosaires #wonderlustbuenosaires #visitbuenosaires #hq_globe

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . Strictly speaking Ramadan is over (well in London it is). So Eid Mubarak to each and every one of you. . I started this series with a photo of the Royal Palace in Seville, and I am going to end this series with another photo from the same palace. Whenever anyone goes to Andalucia, its always about the Alhambra in Granada or the Mesquita in Cordoba. My one piece of advice is not to overlook Sevilla, especially the Real Alcazar (Royal Palace). Its one of my favourite places to visit in Spain. What's your favourite place to visit in Spain? . . . . I hope you have liked my series. . . . Do you like travelling? What is the one thing you look forward to most when travelling? . . . . . . . #EidMubarak #RoyalPalace #sevilla #lines #realalcazar #andalucia #seville #place_wow #aplacetoremember #IAmATraveller #travellingourplanet #hq_globe #just_features #globelusters #mylpguide #travelanddestinations #guardiantravel #uniladadventure #addictedtotravel #speechlessplaces #exploreourearth #citydetails #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #showthemtheworld #roughguides #travelobsessed #placestotravel #traveloften #architecture_hunter

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . Tokyo International Forum. Located in Tokyo's central Marunouchi district, is a convention and arts center. The Forum is visited by more than 20 million people each year, and it serves as a center for promoting and communicating comprehensive culture and information. Apparently it is going to be venue for weightlifting in the 2020 Olympics. What do you make of it? . . . . Have you ever visited Tokyo? What is the biggest atrium you have been to? . . . . . . . #TIF #TokyoInternationalForum #tokyo #space #atrium #architecture #japanarchitecture #place_wow #aplacetoremember #IAmATraveller #travellingourplanet #hq_globe #just_features #globelusters #mylpguide #travelanddestinations #guardiantravel #uniladadventure #addictedtotravel #speechlessplaces #exploreourearth #citydetails #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #showthemtheworld #roughguides #travelobsessed #placestotravel #traveloften #architecture_hunter

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . This is the main hall of Oslo City Hall. The hall was decorated byΒ Henrik Sorensen and Alf Rolfson, and the floor and parts of the walls are clad in marble. The room has a series of wall paintings depicting Norway and Oslo between the wars and also during occupation. Oslo City Hall also hosts the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in which the annual laureate gives his or her lecture and is awarded the medal and diploma. Not bad huh. Have you ever been to a place where it is associated with peace? . . . . Have you ever visited Oslo? What is the biggest hall you have been to? . . . . . . . #OsloCityHall #nobel #oslo #mainhall #NobelPeacePrize #marble #peace #place_wow #aplacetoremember #IAmATraveller #travellingourplanet #hq_globe #just_features #globelusters #mylpguide #travelanddestinations #guardiantravel #uniladadventure #addictedtotravel #speechlessplaces #exploreourearth #citydetails #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #showthemtheworld #roughguides #travelobsessed #placestotravel #traveloften #architecture_hunter

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . This is Grundtvig's Church in Copenhagen, Denmark. It's a relatively new church (less than a hundred years old) but for me, without doubt it is one of the most serene, peaceful churches I have ever been to. I visited it on a Friday afternoon and apart fom my friend and I, there were no more than 5 people there during our visit, maybe that added to the peaceful nature of the church. Have you ever been to a church where you are the only one there? . . . . Have you ever visited Copenhagen? Do you like gothic architecture? . . . . . . . #grundtvigskirken #gothic #copenhagen #church #GothicArchitecture #danisharchitecture #peaceful #place_wow #aplacetoremember #IAmATraveller #travellingourplanet #hq_globe #just_features #globelusters #mylpguide #travelanddestinations #guardiantravel #uniladadventure #addictedtotravel #speechlessplaces #exploreourearth #citydetails #suitcasetravels #wheretofindme #showthemtheworld #roughguides #travelobsessed #placestotravel #traveloften #architecture_hunter

. Ramadan 2018 series: I N T E R I O R S. . . . . . . TheΒ Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia, alternatively known as Saint Mary's Cathedral or simply Valencia Cathedral. The most famous thing about this cathedral is that it holds a chalice, and this chalice has been defended as the true Holy Grail. It was the official papal chalice for many popes, and has been used by many others, most recently by POpe Benedict XVI. The cathedral is mostly gothic in style and dates back to the thirtheenth century. Whats the most holy relic you have ever seen? . . . . Have you ever visited Valencia?
