San Telmo hotels
Buenos Aires’ oldest barrio, or neighbourhood, is San Telmo. What is now an arts and entertainment Mecca began as a manufacturing and warehousing district and residential area for African labourers. Early commercial enterprises included a windmill, brick kilns, and wool and leather processing. A massive influx of European immigrants from 1875 to 1930 contributed greatly to the barrio’s cultural diversity. The cobblestone streets were part of infrastructure development in the mid-19th century. As the immigrants’ fortunes improved, their departure heralded a bohemian period with a quickening cultural pulse. The late 20th-century brought a wave of architectural restoration. By 2008, San Telmo was home to 30 cultural establishments.
- Watch the performances of puppeteers, clowns, and street entertainers at San Telmo’s cosy weekend street fairs. For the famous Feria de Antiguedades, surrounding streets are closed each Sunday, and you here you can learn the hottest dance in Buenos Aires.
- Tour the Manzana de las Luces, a fine example of San Telmo’s classical architecture.
- Attend an opening at Appetite, Buenos Aires’ premiere artist-operated gallery and studio. The avant-garde art space is the subject of many enthusiastic media reviews.
Although buses are everywhere, routes are poorly signed and only exact change is accepted. By far, the most convenient access to San Telmo from Buenos Aires is the underground metro system, Subte, which has its own attractions. The Southern Hemisphere’s first below-ground mass transport system is currently owned by the government and operated by a private contractor, yet functions quite smoothly. Take the Subte Line-C, which runs along the world’s widest street, and disembark at Independencia. Stroll east on Avenida Independencia, then turn right on Calle Defensia. This will land you safely in the heart of San Telmo.
