What to do in San Telmo
San Telmo is a neighborhood full of places to discover. It is part of the Historic Quarter of the City of Buenos Aires and preserves much of its heritage architectural. Its cobbled streets, low houses and patios with reservoirs suggest a stalemate in time .
We tell you some must-see places in this beautiful neighborhood.
Walk of the Cartoon
This street circuit pays homage to the best characters in Argentine comics: Mafalda, Isidoro, Patoruzú, Clemente and Gaturro, among others.
Faculty of Engineering, Paseo Colón headquarters
This mid-20th century building was built for the María Eva Duarte de Perón Foundation, but its founder passed away in 1952 and never occupied the offices. Later, the work was reformed and went to this faculty of the University of Buenos Aires. The building is a replica of the building of the Faculty of Law, located in the neighborhood of Recoleta, of monumental and neoclassical style.
The Old Warehouse
This former field warehouse dates back to 1798. In 1969, the famous tangos singer Edmundo Rivero bought it to transform it into one of the most important tango venues in the city. Today it is an à la carte restaurant with an extensive selection of wines and an excellent tango show.
The Minimum House
With just 2.50 meters in front, this house, which was part of a house from the second decade of the nineteenth century, is known as the narrowest in the city. The minimum house is also known for the myth that hovered around it. It was believed that a free slave had lived there, to whom his master would have donated the land to build his home.
San Lorenzo Passage
It’s a two-block cut street. Most of the buildings that flank it date back to the second half of the 19th century. In the passage you can visit the gallery Los Patios de San Telmo, a typical 18th century house that houses workshops by artists and craftsmen.
Under this building were discovered tunnels with more than four centuries of life in Buenos Aires. In the 20th century, in the 1980s, the current owner of the site made an involuntary archaeological finding: while trying to recover this house
Argentina, licenciada en Comunicación Social y correctora. Me apasiona la escritura, la propia y la ajena. Mi amor por las palabras, por las frases mágicas y perfectas, me llevó a dirigir mi carrera profesional hacia la redacción, a lo que luego sumé la corrección para mejorar mis textos y, también, los de otros autores. Porque una imagen no siempre vale más que mil palabras. Gracias por leerme.
