Pedestrian Plaza
“Historical must see place when visiting Argentina. Very colourful houses and buildings. Lots of shops selling different kinds of low priced souvenirs. Different tango dancers are roaming around and will take a picture with you. Some places are very expensive for what they are and you have to be very careful with your belongings. On the other hand, a very picturesque place. Parks & Nature”

Pedestrian Plaza
“Located in La boca, the Caminito (little path, in Spanish) is a street museum of colourful painted houses typical of the immigrant dwellings that came to chracterise this portside area towards the end of the 19th and start of the 20th century. The Caminito followed the route of an old stream that once flowed into the Riachuelo, and later, after the river dried up, formed part of a railroad route. After the closure of the railroad, the street was largely abandoned until in the 1950s a group of neighbours decided to regenerate the area and local artist Benito Quinquela Martín began using the tenements as his canvas. Today, there are several works by Argentine artists incorporated as part of the street museum and the Caminito has become a favourite with visitors to the city. Several restaurants offer tango and folk dance shows and street fills with artists offering original crafts and paintings. The tenement buildings made of wood and sheet metal are typical of the conventillos, precarious, communal dwellings built by Genoan immigrants starting in the late 19th century. Many dwellings are built on raised foundations due to frequent floods in the past.”

“This Genovese trattoria serves up some of the best pasta in town, including perfectly al dente tagliatelle alla rúcola (tagliatelle with arugula), and tortelli bianchi con burro foso al aglio (pasta pillows stuffed with chard and Parmesan in a burned garlic sauce). For dessert there’s a great tiramisu. Take a taxi here at night. Also in Palermo.”

“Napo is the owner of this restaurant, but he has put a parrilla in the street and serves THE BEST bondiola (pork) sandwich. TIP: Order it complete and you will have a massive frisky street-food experience. He is a loved, well-knowned figure of La Boca and many musicians stop by his restaurant and maybe get up the stage to play a bit.”
