San Telmo Buenos Aires

San Telmo

San Telmo is a unique barrio in  Buenos Aires Argentina. This old neighborhood is lined with classic Spanish architecture from the days when Tango was just beginning. San Telmo was rich, poor, rich then poor again. Finally in the 1980´s the city of Buenos Aires designated it a historical zone thus protecting much of the orginal architecture, but also angering many of the citizens. But for now, San Telmo is perserved for your veiwing pleasure.

San Telmo has an excellent arts and crafts fair on Sundays at Plaza Dorrego. After the fair, there is a milonga which is a large Tango dance. This neighborhood is filled with antique shops and holds the oldest active shopping mall in Buenos Aires. Restaurants are also very interesting in this area. And there are many excellent Tango shows offered too.
