La Boca, Buenos Aires

The neighborhood of La Boca, which literally translated means “the mouth” of the city, is the old port that saw the entry of millions of immigrants into Buenos Aires as they flocked from Europe to the New World. It was here that the city began its 20th century boom – La Boca is the birthplace of Argentine tango and even Argentine pizza.

Today La Boca is still the home of the Italian community, Boca Juniors soccer club, and the vibrant, colorful Caminito street. To understand the background history behind Caminito, and the surrounding southern neighborhoods, take a half day private walking tour of La Boca & San Telmo.
