The San Telmo Art Walk is totally a thing unto itself. Taking over the entire neighborhood, one can walk and view everything in the mercado for HOURS, never tiring of it. YOU MUST GO!

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
