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.

Cool old BA neighbourhood. Cobblestones and antique stalls. Family run restaurants and flamenco in the square under the moonlight. Not too busy during the day, chilled at night. Great neighbourhood to hang and sink a beer.

We took a tour which had us walking through this area. There are several of the oldest bars and cafes of Buenos Aires, each with a great deal of character and atmosphere. The old Market has many different antique stores ripe for browsing.

Well worth taking a stroll around, particulary the market and immediate area which has some fantastic bars/ restaurants and if your're lucky you'll see street Tango

Very lively area home to many bars, restaurants, street artists and antique shops. You never know what you may find next along the narrow streets and main square.

San Telmo is a must on Sundays afternoon. The fair on Plaza Dorrego takes place only on Sundays and you can bargain anything, surrounding the plaza (square) there is one cafe next to the other.--also full of antique shops..all open for the bargain... At around 6.30 you can enjoy a free tango lesson and the history of Tango since Valentino's time. Rest of the days is full of antique shops....but the fun is only Sundays. No dress code. Just normal wear. Comfortable shoes or sneakers so you can stroll comfortably. For ANY kind of public, solo, couples, family. Also nearby you can have a good barbecue for lunch or late for dinner. NO PUBLIC restrooms, you have to ask permission at a restaurant or have a coffee to be able to use their bathrooms.
