is an upscale area of Recoleta known for the fine dining, high end shops
and ritzy hotels.
Some of the
landmarks in the area include Alvear Plaza, Carlos Pellegrini, the
French Embassy, the Brazilian Embassy, the Park Hyatt Hotel, the Vatican
Embassy, and Hotel Alvear.
A few of the well known name brands that
have stores on Alvear Avenue are Armani, Valentino, Louis Vuitton,
Hermes, Cartier, Jean Pierre, Ralph Lauren, Ariete, and James Smart.
We really enjoyed walking along Avenida
Alvear checking out all of the high end merchandise in the store
At the end of the walk, we came upon the
Alvear Plaza with a statue dedicated to Carlos Pellegrini.
