About the district San Telmo
Barrio de San Telmo
In Buenos Aires, each neighborhood has its own atmosphere and color. San Telmo, for example, is also described as ‘the Jordaan of Buenos Aires’. The neighborhood is very atmospheric due to the narrow streets, the artists, the unique bars and restaurants. Special are also the beautiful mansions: a heritage of the 19th century when San Telmo belonged to the richer families of the city. Also for tango this area is fantastic due to the many schools and institutes.

Plaza Dorrego is a famous square in the heart of San Telmo neighborhood. It is one of the oldest squares of the city and is surrounded by bars, pubs and coffee houses. On the square itself tango dancers often show the best of themselves. Every Sunday morning there is a large antique market. The square and the streets around are filled with stalls with art, kitsch and antiques. There are also often street performers and mimespelers.
La Boca is one of the most colorful neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The heart of the tourist area of La Boca is El Caminito Street. Around these streets are many restaurants and souvenir shops. La Boca is not sure to name the birthplace of the Tango, but it is sure that the dance and the music became extremely popular over here. You’ll still find plenty of tango clubs and tango dancers / tango shows on the streets. The houses are decorated with murals of Tango and the culture in the neighborhood. El Caminito with its many murals and statues is sometimes called ‘the world’s first open-air museum for pedestrians’. The neighborhood is also known for its famous football club, the Boca Juniors.
