Buenos Aires's History

Buenos Aires was founded twice:
The first in 1536. Don Pedro de Mendoza, a Spanish colonizer, established the first settlement. He named: City of the Holy Spirit and Puerto Santa María del Buen Ayre. The second, and final, in 1580. Juan de Garay site called the City of Trinidad.
In the nineteenth century the port was the arrival point of the great migratory promoted by the Argentine State to populate the nation. Spanish, Italian, Syrian-Lebanese, Polish and Russian immigrants provided Buenos Aires with the cultural eclecticism that distinguishes it.
Throughout the twentieth century, successive immigrations-internal, Latin America and the Middle-finished picture of Buenos Aires as a cosmopolitan city where people live in different cultures and religions.
