Puerto Madero occupies a revamped dockside area of the old Buenos Aires port, being one of the most successful recent waterfront renewal projects in the world.
It is now one of the most enjoyable and important touristic places of the city. It contains at walking distance fancy restaurants and steakhouses, coffee shops, museums, sleek skyscrapers that house multinational corporations and high-value apartments.
Among the attractions of Puerto Madero, it is to be mentioned the Puente de la Mujer (Bridge of the Woman) and several historic sailing ships moored in its docks, such as the frigate Sarmiento and the corvette Uruguay.
Next to Puerto Madero is the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, which offers surprising landscapes in the middle of nature, at a very short distance from the city business center.
