Browse the "treasures" if you like, but this is just an assortment of junk for sale at top prices. Stop by and see the famous "antiques" market, but the antiques are few and far between.

Billed as an antiques market, the Ferris De San Telmo is mainly a long stretch of tents offering touristy crafts, leather goods, etc. In fact, there are not really any antiques at all. To find antiques you will need to venture into the established stores...More

The market is quite a small and market spread along two short streets like a cross. In addition look into internal yards. Since it is small it is very crowded per this small surface and all around there is not much time to spend here...More

It is a huge, huge market and there are loads of people but the goods are pretty rough, no real bargains - start at the plaza mayor and work your way down avoiding beggars, so-called loud unwashed street entertainers and rip off stalls. I love...More

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
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
