Pinheiros River in São Paulo

Walking around the Rio de la Plata in Buenos Aires is among the most pleasant experiences the city has to offer. Puerto Madero’s pool of bars and restaurants framed by the Puente de la Mujer bridge, coupled with a beautiful park and the calm waters of the river creates one of the most picture-perfect scenes of the Argentinian capital—enough to make tourists pay no attention to the fact that the charming landscape sits on top of an old landfill. That’s the kind of experience Governor João Doria is looking to build on the São Paulo Pinheiros River.
