Walking from the City Center towards the South you will enter the historical and bohemian neighborhood of San Telmo. This is actually the place where most of the historical events of Buenos Aires have taken place. The Colonial style houses of the former European immigrants are today reminders of what once was a historical upscale neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
Nowadays, the neighborhood of San Telmo is characterized by its cobblestone streets, art galleries and tango shows. The central place of this antique neighborhood is the Plaza Dorrego, especially on Saturdays and Sundays.
South of San Telmo, the port neighborhood of La Boca is famous for being the first home for all kinds of immigrants. It maintained its historical appearance and is mainly visited by tourists in search for tango shows, the famous colorful sheet-iron houses, artists and of course a football match at the famous Boca Juniors stadium “La Bombonera”.
