It is a very good option when you are visiting La Boca it has a good permanent collection and it has a nice Cafe Bar at the top form where you can take good pictures of the Boca opening to the Rio de La Plata (main river )

A fabulous place for lunch. So different from El Caminito - visual art displays and the best bathroom in Buenos Aires!

The exhibition was great, very modern. There's also a very nice café with terrace. This space is also a good contrast to the tourist streets of La Boca.

Wanted to see the exhibit but they were installing so we stayed for lunch. It's a beautify space with a library and really nice cafe that has indoor and outdoor seating. A nice break from crazy Camino and the heat. Lunch was gourmet and the apple pie very creative. A huge pile of cooked chopped apples with a spoonful of... More

We actually just came in for lunch. We both found it enjoyable. Reasonably priced and with great views. We had finger foods (multiple appetizers ) , cafe , tea,water, desert for about 235 AR pesos US $16 - $17. We would recommend it.

This is a exceptional place. They usually have interesting exposition. You can have a nice cup of coffee with a exceptional view of "La Boca". The place is cozy, it has nice couches in the terrace. You can also have meals. But just a coffee and the view pays the visit. You can also go, just for the view, there... More

After coming in from the riotous colours of La Boca, I initially found this place a little odd, all clean and shiny and white. But once I focused on the interesting exhibits it revealed it true worth. We enjoyed both floors, but I particularly liked the exhibition on Forensics and its use in challenging state practices - I learned so... More

We were looking for things to do in La Boca aside from the touristy Caminito, and I'm so glad we decided to visit Proa. When we were there, the excellent Jeremy Deller show was up, and we spent hours taking in all the work. Lunch upstairs in the cafe was excellent, and with a great view.

Staying in La Boca

Neighborhood Profile
La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colorful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
