I had an apartment in Belgrano for a month. I absolutely loved being here. Yes, it is a hike to the city center by (overcrowded) metro, but there is so much to see/do here I didn't feel the need to leave very often. Just as Palermo is geared towards a young, yuppie crowd, Belgrano is more family oriented full of... More

October 21st - 2015 - After a few days in Buenos Aires you'll learn that it has four areas that upper and middle class people choose to settle down: Puerto Madero, Belgrano, Recoleta & Palermo. And although the prices of houses go from top to bottom exactly in the order in which I have listed these 4 boroughs of Buenos... More

Belgrano used to be a town that was drained into the city. I love the ciruclar church in thepicture, that reminds me of a pagan construction. Right in front of the church close to Cabildo and Juramenteo you will find Museo Larreta.There is a french maze where the legend says that Borges got inspiration for his short story El laberinto....

Well, I am back again to Buenos Aires and am looking forward to writing about some of its interesting and less touristic places. Before I start, I have a couple of comments. Those of you who have been to “Caffé Tabak” on Avenida del Libertador and have enjoyed their excellent food would be sad to hear that it is now... More

Belgrano offers most of the stores that can be found at main shopping malls. The best part of Belgrano is Belgrano "R" (for residential), and that is where most of the best houses are located, in spite of the flat buildings that are being built. There, you will find french and english style houses that seem to represent a piece... More

I stayed in Belgrano during my visit to BsAs. Very easy access to the Subte (Linea D) to get you around the rest of BsAs. Enjoyed my stay here!

We lived in the area for a year now. Good restaurants, OK shopping. Not very clean and can be busy at times. Always feels safe to walk the streets even at night. I even got to like china-town after a few weeks. Shopping the odd stuff there is usually very nice priced.

We saw this area from our city tour bus and came back to see on our own. We enjoyed this area very much, from the metro stop all the way to the Chinatown area, good meal lots to see and do along the way.

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.
