Buses: 12, 124, 130
Summary: Easily one of the most photograph-able monuments in Buenos Aires, the Floralis Genérica has become one of the most iconic images of Buenos Aires (like it, or not). This massive sculpture, designed and donated by architect Eduardo Catalano in 2002, is composed of six petals (each 13 meters long), which open and close at sunrise and sunset in sync with the movement of the sun.
LandingPadBA.com Recommendation: The Floralis really is one of those things that everyone should see while in Buenos Aires. It’s located along the walk from Facultad de Derecho to MALBA along Av. Figueroa Alcorta, and well worth the quick stop. Even better: dogs are banned from the surrounding plaza. This is one of the few places in Buenos Aires where one needn’t worry about stepping in a good ol’ BA slider!
