The Club de Pescadores, which means “Fishermen’s Club”, is located on the banks of the Rio de la Plata in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Club de Pescadores was constructed in 1930 on an old pier that was built by a French company in 1903. It was originally a fishermen’s club and fishermen came and tied their boats to the pier and stayed there to rest. The pier was destroyed in 1905 due to a violent storm and was then rebuilt. The building officially opened in 1937, an occasion to which the president of Argentina at the time was invited. It was declared a national historic monument in 2001. Fishing contests are held inside the building and there is also fishing activities for younger children, including a fishing school for kids. Just make sure to follow the rules and regulations if you plan on fishing on or near the pier. Club de Pescadores is a family friendly and educational place to visit.
