Almagro, Caballito & Villa Crespo

Located in the geographical center of the City of Buenos Aires, the traditional barrios of Almagro, Caballito and Villa Crespo offer a taste of everyday life for middle class porteños. Villa Crespo, home to a large Jewish community, is fast becoming overrun with hipsters, while Almagro is full of beautiful old buildings. In Parque Rivadavia in Caballito old men while away the afternoons playing the traditional card game Truco. 

The bullseye at the center of the city map is Parque Centenario, a circular park that links Caballito and Villa Crespo. Lapped by joggers from dusk til dawn and always busy, at weekends it fills with families and mate drinking friends and couples. Here among the empanada sellers, second hand stalls and people practicing tela (see main photo) authentic porteño family life can be found.
