The Obelisk of Buenos Aires is considered the emblem of the City and a porteño icon par excellence.
It was built in 1936 as a reminder of the fourth centenary of the founding of the city. It is the work of Alberto Prebisch, a renowned Argentine modernist architect.
The Obelisk is located between two of the busiest streets in Buenos Aries: 9 de Julio and Corrientes Street.
You will be able to contemplate the Obelisk from the Hotel Bristol itself, since it is located a few meters from it.
