Options :


1. South Buenos Aires circuit : Old city and south areas circuit (Puerto Madero, La Boca, San Telmo ,Monserrat ,Barracas)

Sites of interest: (Ship Museum and Frigate Sarmiento,The Bridge of the Woman , casino, Ecologic Reserve, Museum of the Immigration, Puerto Madero Yacht Club , opera bay, Ship Museum and Corvette Uruguay).

Barracas: The name comes from the word "barraca", which means a precarious construction, made out of very simple materials.In the beginning and during the past century Barracas was the area chosen by the wealthiest families of Argentina. But the epidemic of yellow fever made everyone move to other places, transforming it completely.

Something similar took place in San Telmo. Immigrants of varied types started to populate the area, but especially Italians, and it turned into the neighborhood of the working class. It got full of "cafetines"(small coffee houses) with a bad reputation, which were places for all kinds of crooks to hide. In spite of that, it was still a prosperous area of Buenos Aires with factories, markets and highways.

Sites of interest: (Lanín Street covered with murals, Santa Felicitas church, ferroviario Neighborhood , Colombia square, the abandoned factories)
