Buenos Aires, Argentina


Notes: Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and its largest city and port. It is located on the southern shore of the Río de la Plata (River Plate, the River of Silver), on the southeastern coast of the South American continent.
Strongly influenced by European culture, Buenos Aires is sometimes referred to as the "Paris of the South" or "Paris of South America".
After the internal conflicts of the 19th century, Buenos Aires was federalised and removed from Buenos Aires Province in 1880; its city limits were enlarged to include the former towns of Belgrano and Flores — both are now neighbourhoods in the city.
Buenos Aires (English: Fair Winds, pronounced ˈbwe.nɔs ˈaj.ɾɛs) was originally called Ciudad de la Santísima Trinidad y Puerto de Santa María del Buen Aire, "City of the Most Holy Trinity and Port of Saint Mary of the Fair Winds".
The city name was chosen by the chaplain of Mendoza's expedition (see History, below), who was a devout follower of the Virgine de Bonaria ("Our Lady of the Fair Winds") of Cagliari, Sardinia.
Argentines sometimes refer to the city as Capital Federal to differentiate the city from the province of the same name. In the 1994 constitution, the city was given autonomy, hence its formal name: Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires.
The abbreviations Bs. As. and Baires are sometimes used, the first one mostly in writing and the second one in everyday speech. The city is sometimes called La reina del Plata ("The Queen of the Plate" region of the river's basin).
Spanish seaman Juan Díaz de Solís was the first European to reach the Río de la Plata, in 1516, but his expedition was cut short by an attack in which he was killed by the native Charrúa or Guaraní tribe.
The city was first founded as Ciudad de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre (literally "City of Our Lady Saint Mary of the 'Good Air' old Spanish for 'Fair Wind(s)'") on February 2, 1536 by a Spanish gold-seeking expedition…
