Buenos Aires for Digital Nomads

BUENOS AIRES – ARGENTINA  (City of Our Lady Saint Mary of the Fair Winds)

A Spanish expedition led by a God fearing explorer Pedro de Mendoza reached the shores of Argentina and founded the first permanent settlement which was the precursor to the city of modern Buenos Aires.

He named the place of his landing as the “City of Our Lady Saint Mary of the Fair Winds” which was the first thing that came to his mind when he saw the beauty of the landscape and the picturesque setting of the place.

Being a ardent believer in Catholicism he was under the impression that it was God’s doing that he landed in this never before seen land and naturally followed his religious fervor by naming it so.

Today Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city of 17 million inhabitants which includes an urban population of 3 million and a metro population of 14 million.
