The lively neighbourhood of San Telmo lies only 6 blocks from the Plaza de Mayo. With its faded glory, narrow cobblestone streets, a fabulous street market and squares where people dance tango, San Telmo is one of Buenos Aires’ most popular attractions.
San Telmo’s somewhat dilapidated buildings are part of this neighbourhood’s charm. The streets attract young artists and intellectuals who have flocked to San Telmo en masse. The neighbourhood is also home to small family-run bakeries, lovely antiques shops and hip bars, making San Telmo one of Buenos Aires’ most beloved neighbourhoods.
