Visitors to Buenos Aires will be spoilt for choice when it comes to spectator sports. The city has a varied selection of world-class venues, many historically significant as well as impressive. The Luna Park, a former boxing stadium with a 15,000 capacity, is the very place where Eva Duarte met Juan Peron. Whichever you visit, the vibrant spirit of the city tends to spill over into the stadium, making sport spectating in Buenos Aires a vivid cultural experience. A day at the races at the glitzy Hipódromo Argentino, for example, offers unrivalled people-watching and a unique experience – even if you know next to nothing about horse-racing.
