The tour starts at the Planetarium Galileo Galilei, a 1960s building shaped like a UFO, in the Parque Tres de Febrero in Palermo. The tour continues through the beautiful park, also known as The Forests of Palermo, one of the city’s most popular open spaces. The park was first opened in 1875 and is the perfect place to relax and unwind, walk, run, cycle, roller-skate, or have a picnic with friends. Tres de Febrero is not the only park you will see, with the route continuing through Ecuador Park, Fangio Park – where you can see more than 50 cars of Juan Martin Fangio – and the mystical Rosedal.
The running tours continue that way:
The “cathedral of polo” hosts some of the best polo in the world.
The highlight of the calendar is the annual Argentine Open polo tournament, which takes place in late spring (November – December). The competition is recognised as the most important inter-club polo tournament in the world, and one of the most exciting sporting events you can see.
Seeing the skill of the players at close hand makes an impact on every spectator.
The venue, which opened in 1928, also hosts concerts and other sports events, including hockey and “pato”, Argentina’s national sport.
