The Obelisk monument is easy to spot when exiting any nearby metro station. Standing at the intersection of Corrientes and 9 de Julio, it's a national Historic Monument and one of the more touristy sights to check out when visiting Buenos Aires. It makes for a great photo backdrop when you get further down the avenues.

The Obelisk like others in important cities a round the World, are beautiful squares to take a walk with your family.

Local from Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina

The obelisk has nothing special in itself, it's just a landmark in the middle of the avenue. What's more interesting is the life of the city around that area. It's full of office buildings, restaurants, banks, shops, cars, people coming and going.

This is not really something that you have to go see specially, you are likely to see it while in a cab through downtown/micro-centro. It is a striking landmark that is hard to miss, but dont fret over it if you do.
