Versalles is an exclusively residential area with a style of its own. Its low houses and streets lined with old trees give the population of this part of the City of Buenos Aires an exquisite sensation of peace and tranquility.
The name Versalles (or Versailles) was given to the area when the company "Tierras del Oeste" (Lands of the West) bought the lands when the railroad was extended from Villa Luro. The doctor of the company, Dr. José Guerrico, had just gotten back from France where he had fallen in love with the Versalles Palace close to Paris and recommended the name of the palace as the new neighborhoods name, and it was accepted.
The general architecture has a special artistic style that was created by the English that came to the area working on the railroad. They were the ones who imposed their style on the neighborhood, and in some places that same style is still kept.
It is the highest situated area in Buenos Aires, and also the one that has the most green area per person. According to measurements by the City Government, it is the quietest, and the calmest neighborhood in the entire City of Buenos Aires.
Since it is considered a residential area, buildings of more than three stories are not allowed, making the population density one of the lowest ones in the City of Buenos Aires.
In the area of Versalles, Buenos Aires' first Super Market was built, called "Gigante S.A." (Giant S.A.)
