rosedal buenos aires


One of the various parks in Palermo district is the Rose Park of Buenos Aires, aka Rosedal. It is a traditional park with 18.000 rose bushes and many artworks.

These lands were known as the Palermo baths and belonged to Juan Manuel de Rosas, major of Buenos Aires in the XIX. After he was defeated in a battle against another faction of the country, these lands were confiscated and the new government decided to design the Rose Park, Rosedal, as we know nowadays.

It was inaugurated in 1914. There is an Andalusian Patio, a gift from Sevilla in 1929, that consist of a pergola, a gazebo covered with climbing roses and vines that culminates in the sculptural work of Emile Peynot. Also there are a couple of fountains around the side walk.

In front of the Rosedal you will find Eduardo Sivori Museum, a municipal art museum. This museum houses a splendid collection of Argentine art of the XX and XXI century. Also temporary exhibitions are organized.

This is another free walk that you can do in Buenos Aires discovering artworks between the roses.
