While walking around Buenos Aires we found Calle Defensa and glad we did. This is a fun area with so much to do. The neighborhood's colonial buildings house many cafes, tango parlors, and antique shops. You can admire the old churches that pepper the barrio, wander around a museum, or stop by the semi-permanent antiques market. There are street performers providing entertainment on every corner. In recent years, many art galleries and centers have cropped up here, turning it into a haven for contemporary art lovers. A wide selection of bars and restaurants round off the area's attractions. Definitely recommend this area.
