Communes of Buenos Aires

The city of Buenos Aires is administratively divided into fifteen comunas,[1] unlike the rest of Argentina where the second order administrative division is departamentos, or the Province of Buenos Aires which is subdivided into partidos.[2] Each commune encompasses one or more neighbourhoods (barrios), which are represented in the respective community centres for administrative purposes.[3]

Coloured Comunas with neighbourhood divisions.

The division by comunas was instituted by the 1996 Constitution of the City of Buenos Aires[4] and modified in 2005 by Law #1777.[5] The law was again modified in 2008,[6] 2011,[7] and 2013[8]
