Again, Buenos Aires in her halcyon days. Now an excellent performing arts centre. You may catch a top-notch concert, most probably for free. And do not miss EL Obrero restaurant across the street. A MUST!

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,
