Owner description: Architectural landmarks in the city’s oldest neighborhood have been restored, and this revitalized area is distinctly artistic, with cafes, antique shops, cobblestone streets and lots of artists and dancers.

Amazing neighborhood in the heart of Buenos Aires. The stone streets bring you back to colonial times. There are small stores that offer wine and delicious delicacies, such as alfajores and chocolate bars .Also, beutiful decorated stores are located along these streets, On the other hand, an open market is visited by many tourist every Sunday afternoon. I loved it!!!!!!

Given the centre of BA can be quiet on a Sunday we caught the subte blue line to Independencia and then made the 10 minute walk down to San Telmo. It is very busy street market that sells everything from tacky imports through to fine antiques oh and fruit & veg if you need something to go with your dinner. In amongst all of this are magicians, tango dancers, music bands, mime artists and just about every conceivable type of life imaginable. A very long street which got very crowded but at all times it felt safe & fun. Lots of street food or restaurants to eat in - or just sit & watch the world go past. Look out for the antique jewelry shops - sheer amount of stock is glitteringly impressive. By chance we happened on Museo Penitenciario - 378 Humberto Primero - museopenitenciario.spf.gov.ar which couldn't find in Tripadvisor listings. Free and worth a look to see what was a working prison dating back to the 18th century looks like.

San Telmo is a very nice neighborhood in BA. The popular thing here is the street market on Sundays. You can walk for quite a ways enjoying the weather and architecure of the city as well as the culture and vendors. At the end of many blocks is a square where there is a little Tango going on in the street as well as more vendors. We sat and had a beer and burger at El Dorrego on the square and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Its definitely a place to check out in BA.

San Telmo is a huge street market that works on sundays. It's nice to walk around and check out all the hand made staff and gastronomy around.
It's nice but the first 2 blocs looks really turistic (not hand made staff, but chinese staff... :/)
Walk a little bit more and you gonna find parrillas, choripans, cafes... tango on the street... and second hand market!
