Fantastic area, hidden gem within the Callao neighbourhood. Check out the “Monumental Callao” art house and its direct surrounding. You can easily spend half a day wandering here! Great food and drinks options too

El Callao has a street where there are some nice restaurants and some galleries that are interesting to visit. However, this seems to be a very dangerous area so best to avoid on your own or late at night.
