“Stunning work of art”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Set in nice park this metal flower is worth a photo. It used to open at night but the mechanism is broken and our guide said it is too expensive to fix. Shame

“Steel Flower of Buenos Aires”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Check out the Steel Flower of Buenos Aires. This sculpture will impress you and one can walk from the Recolata cemetery within 10 minutes. It's impressive. The flower opens and closes, but didn't do so while I saw it. Stay longer if you have the good fortune to observe it in action. Check it out. You can avoid the tour buses by walking around the plaza. There are other cool parks in the area to walk around.

“Cool modern monument”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

The Metal flower as they call it is cool! A beautiful monument and the part it's in is also beautiful for a walk. On hot days people even go there on their bathing suits to get a tan. It's really worth to go and snap a few pictures. On your way out stop at the facultad de derecho which is an amazing building right next to it.

“Stunning monument, but neglected”
Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

I was walking around the parks and passed by the Floralis Generica. Really appreciated the structure, but it is seriously neglected. No water in the pond, the layer of dust thickening on the structure, the park around it, completely deserted (no flowers or plants), with the hundreds of visitors daily, the city could do something. Especially when you see the impressive number of embassies in the neighbourhood.

“Nice visit for a short walk”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Interesting fountain, although it was not operating while I was there. The photos came out good. The day was nice and the walk was good. Stopped off here for a while during the double decked bus tour.
