I have never been a great fan of La Boca, the barrio I mean. Too touristy and too artificial, compared to what it once really looked like. Not safe all. But The Fundacion Proa makes that you have to get there. The Ai WeiWei exhibition...More

Small private gallery but amazing spaces, we visited an awesome Ai Weiwei exhibit for a small fee of 80 pesos. Convenient location next to caminito in la boca, easy to visit by bus. Definitely worthwhile.

Fantastic display of Ai Weiwei’s art in a beautiful space. The rooms add atmosphere and provide the subtle background to let art “do its thing”. It’s a great place to visit for every one, from semi-professional art critic to rebellious teenager without any interest in...More

PROA is a private museum that brings in interesting international post-modern and contemporary artists. The curation is painfully bad at times, but the quality of the work brought in compensates. The museum also boasts a nice rooftop cafe and easy access to nearby Boca's touristy...More

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

melting pot of different cultures and traditions that
birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays,
