See the Casa Rosada

One entire side of the Plaza de Mayo is the iconic Casa Rosada, the presidential palace whose balcony has seen everyone from Juan and Eva Perón to dictator General Leopoldo Galtieri (and even Madonna) declaim. It’s open to the public on weekends and the changing of the guard takes place every hour.
