YELLOW TRAIL

Av. del Libertador entre Libertad y Montevideo

In the heart of the Recoleta neighborhood, on the premises where the old Italpark amusement park operated until 1990, a green space of more than four hectares stands out on Avenida del Libertador.

Distinguished by its sculptures, there are outstanding works such as the statue to the United Nations, by the sculpture Marta Minujín; the "Male Torso", by the Colombian plastic artist Fernando Botero; the "Pro Cultura Nacional" monument, by the Italian sculptor Alejo Afani; and the work "El Árbol", by the artist Néstor Basterretxea, donated by the Basque community.

On the corner of Avenida del Libertador and Avenida Callao stands the old water tower of the Retiro railway complex, an exponent field of English railway architecture developed in Argentina. This building from 1915 houses the Museum of Architecture, created towards the end of the year 2000 by the Central Society of Architects with the aim of exhibiting, preserving and spreading the urban architectural heritage.
