Belgrano is a very nice neighbourhood which deserves to be visited. El Otro Porteño Walking Tour is a good way to discover this area and learn more about Argentina history and culture.

My friend and I took the regular Monday morning Caballito tour and privately-arranged "Dictators" tour with Elisa. She is fantastic - very knowledgeable and passionate about history and Buenos Aires. Both tours took us to areas of BA we NEVER would have found on our own, and certainly never would have explored as well without a professional guide. The pace,... More

I recommend the trip to Belgrano to anybody who would like to see a part of Buenos Aires with its normal life and also learn a little bit of history and customs.

This tour was so amazing...where do I even start?!

This tour is a must if you want to get to know a Buenos Aires off the beaten track. The tour takes you through Belgrano, and you will learn a lot about the history and the neighbourhood as such. The tours are small, which gives it a very nice and comfortable atmosphere. If the weather is nice, continue the tour... More

Staying in Belgrano

Neighborhood Profile
Belgrano
As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires, Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small stores packed to the brim, it is a place where color and scent emanate from every corner, particularly during the Chinese New Year when they spill over to surrounding areas. But if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, the residential quarter of Belgrano is the perfect destination. This section of town features some of the most magnificent mansions in the city, spread out on cobbled streets lined by tall, majestic trees: a true feast for the eyes.
