Grandiose buildings, an attractive plaza and boulevards lined with shade trees lend oft-overlooked Bahía Blanca the feel of a cosmopolitan city in miniature. Its chief advantage is as a resting point during overland trips from Buenos Aires to Patagonia, but it’s not entirely without interest.
Today, this beautiful city features an urban and service infrastructure for all tastes. Its downtown concentrates historical, financial and administrative buildings. As well, some green spaces emerge amidst the concrete, including squares, monuments and fountains that give testimony of the local past.
For lovers of the air, Bahía Blanca provides first-time tourist flights to neighboring circuits, like Monte Hermoso, Sierra de la Ventana and the eye-catching Paso de las Piedras Dam.
