The Sarmiento is at harbour for visitors to explore and forms part of the harbour scene. At night the ship is decorated with lighting against a backdrop of the feature bridge. With restaurants and bars there is ample reward for exploring the area.

Great attraction for an hour or so. Very inexpensive, the ship is interesting to explore. Have to be able to get up and down ladders. We had fun looking around it. Interesting to anyone with an interest in ships or machinery.

Beautiful from the land. We Didn’t do the ship but people seem to enjoyed it. We have sailed on a ship like this so we didn’t visit it. Cost was $20 Argentina Peso (2019).

This Navy boat museum at Puerto Madero is popular among the visitors. Payment of 50 pesos to view the internal parts/decks of this training ship is worthwhile. There are cafes around the port and nice to stroll along the riverside after seeing this museum

Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port
cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious
apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect
combination of old and new. The river provides a
quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the
hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away.
Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are
beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this
