A 17th century Spanish furniture, the bed used by José de San Martín in the house of the miller Tejera and a painting of an archangel Arcabucero are some of the colonial antiques that can be seen in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of San Telmo this weekend for the celebrations of May 25, which will include typical meals in restaurants.

The Historic Quarter of the City of Buenos Aires was the scene of the Revolution of 1810 that resulted in the first country government, and that is why it contains a lot of objects and accumulates anecdotes that captivate porteños and tourists who approach each weekend.

San Telmo has the largest concentration of antiquarians in America and the second in the world after France, with 500 antique shops within a radius of a kilometer.
“ We are like a gallery from the past that shows Argentine history from inside their mansions, their big houses, the artistic movements that were reflected in our country from architecture inside, with art and content,” said Norberto Medrano, president of the Association of Antiquarians and Friends of San Francisco Telmo.

Until 1776, we were part of the Viceroyalty of Peru,” explained Willy Pastrana, prosecretary of the Association of Antiquarians and Friends of San Telmo. Many restaurants in the Historic Centre operate in colonial houses, which this weekend will offer typical dishes such as locro, mondongo, lentil stew, carbonada, empanadas and pastries for faith Among them is the Pulpería Quilapan, installed in the oldest house in the city, which was built in 1730, before the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata. The current Solar Passage (Balcarce 1022), which opened its doors to the public as a restaurant 10 years ago, is a restored canteen whose first construction dates back to 1850. The Solar Gallery of French (Defensa 1066) is a shopping tour in an old house in 1762, where the patriot Domingo French was born in 1774.
