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.

Great atmosphere and places to visit. La Brigada and Café Dorrego are a must.

“Sunday Fair!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

You cannot miss the sunday fair, with all the antiques and street performers. Nice day program, just a bit too hot in the summer...

“Great people watching”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

We walked around the Sunday fair but didn't purchase anything. There were tons of antiques and it was interesting to look around at those. We sat and had coffee next to the plaza and enjoyed the view. Lots of interesting characters hanging around. Would recommend for those who like to observe.

“Sunday Strollers”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Nice place for a stroll on a Sunday, would recommend trying a choripan (sausage sandwich) from one of the bbqs on the street.

“Very quaint and fun”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Lots of people, locals and visitors walk to market on Sundays in the heart of San Thelmo neighbourhood. Street dancing and singing, performances, human statues and invisible men and the like. Colourful and lively. You can buy antiques and curiosities.
