San Telmo, Buenos Aires

Beautifully preserved colonial homes, unpretentious shops and cafes, and a whole bunch of antique dealers line the cobblestone streets of San Telmo –  a neighborhood once home to the poorer immigrant population of Buenos Aires and now full of artists, bohemians and foreigners.

San Telmo buzzes on Sunday afternoons when you can visit the open air antique market at Plaza Dorrego, a phenomenon that has exploded into a street fair that now stretches all the way to Plaza de Mayo. And on any day of the week you can see the real San Telmo, and neighboring La Boca, in a half day private walking tour of the south of Buenos Aires.
