We walked from Teatro Colon to San Telmo, and unfortunately, we did not find it worth the walk. Maybe it was the time of day, we were there early afternoon. We found the area lacking in charm. We walked around, ate lunch and left.

Pop-up art galleries, late-night bars and street murals lend old San Telmo a bohemian vibe. The oldest neighborhood in BA

San Telmo area is a must see area with many shops, bars, restaurants, and market once a week (saturdays). Just sit on one of the outdoors cafes, and enjoy the life.

Our Sunday afternoon in San Telmo markets was a real treat. There was so much to see, for those interested in antiques or handicrafts, but with heaps of local colour as well. This is an experience worth enjoying, even if you don't end up buying...More

How fun! Lots of antique shops...some of which were way beyond my budget...but lots to look at. I went during the week. But I found out that on the weekends there is an open air flea market...which would make this way fun!

We’ve Visited this neighborhood several times while here. The best visits were on the weekend when there were artisans in the plaza and lining the streets. Many of the shops were never open or closed early. The restaurants we visited here served pretty average food....More

I strongly recommend travelers to go to San Telmo, specially to La Manzana de las Luces and El Mercado de San Telmo, very nice to eat asado, listen to some tango, enjoy amazing coffee and buy antiques!

This is a large, interesting market where one can buy small antique objects, copies, articles of clothing, souvenirs etc. Very interesting to walk around on a Sunday - my wife and I spent several hours there. Street musicians add to the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Lots to see, lots to do, great shops and squares. One the must go to areas in Buenos Aires. Look for parks near the area also and little coffee bars.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
