Buenos Aires is a complex, energetic, and seductive port city, which stretches south-to-north along the Rio de la Plata. Portenos, as the multinational people of Buenos Aires are known, possess an elaborate and rich cultural identity. They value their European heritage highly -Italian and German names outnumbered by Spanish, and the lifestyle and architecture are markedly more European than in any other city in South America. One of the world's finest opera houses, the Teatro Colon, flourishes here on the plains alongside the river. Portenos are intensely involved in the life and culture of their city, and they will gladly share the secrets of Buenos Aires, from tango lessons to the best places to eat the famous Argentinian meat. Buenos Aires is also the starting point to visit other nice places such as Iguazu falls (on the Brazilian border), Bariloche and its lakes, or the Patagonia, with its spectacular geography and wildlife, including the Perito Moreno glacier or Torres del Paine (in Chile).
