Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city in Argentina. It's also the financial, industrial, commercial, and social centre of the country. The site of the present city was founded in 1536 by a Spanish gold-seeking expedition and is located on the northeastern riverside, overlooking the Rio de la Plata. Buenos Aires possesses an elaborate and rich cultural identity and is often called the Paris of the Americas.
