The Avenida de Mayo connects the National Congress building with the Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosada, and was named in honor of the May Revolution of 1810 which lead to Argentina's independence from Spain. It is difficult not to compare this grand thoroughfare to other great boulevards around such world, such as those in Paris, Madrid, and Barcelona. This avenue is home to many famous buildings and architecture and home to many important historical events in Argentina's history, and continues to be the primary venue for protests, demonstrations, and celebrations.
