Named in honor of Argentina's National Day (July 9, 1816), 9/7 (9 de Julio) Avenue runs about 1 km west of Rio de la Plata harbor, from the northern district of Retiro to the south of Constitucion station, located in the heart of the port city, capital of Buenos Aires. Photo: Studio New-Art.

If the normal road has 2-3 lanes, this avenue owns 7 lanes for each traffic direction. With a width of 140 m divided into 14 main lanes, 6 side roads parallel to both sides, 9/7 boulevard holds the position of the world's largest road from 1980 to the present.
The act of crossing the street on 9/7 boulevard is considered reckless because of the density of vehicles joining the traffic here. Thousands of cars poured down every minute of the day, suggesting a large traffic "river" image, cutting across the city. Argentinians are very proud of the 9/7 boulevard.
If you ask the locals about this path, you will notice the change in expression and affirmation "that is the largest road in the world, the symbol of the country of Argentina." The park is also built along the boulevard, contributing to increasing the aesthetics of the city.
In the boulevard center, the Avenida de Mayo intersection is one of Buenos Aires's most famous landmarks. The Obelisco building is 70 meters high, covered entirely in white, with a needle-shaped structure, built to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Buenos Aires. Today, this place is the focus of many great celebrations.
Many famous works of cultural and political significance, worth visiting are on this street like the French Embassy, the perfect masterpiece of European architecture; Teatro Colon concert hall, Parliament building, Don Quixote de la Manch statue … Tourists will be visited some important and iconic landmarks of Buenos Aires.
