San Telmo

San Telmo

SAN TELMO In its beginnings, this neighbourhood was inhabited by the wealthiest families of Buenos Aires until 1871\'s Yellow Fever epidemic forced them to move North. With the passing of time, San Telmo\'s appearance changed and it became a sightseeing must\' in which old times valuable architecture can be appreciated. Among the interesting spots you\'ll find the Orthodox Russian Church (1904), La De...fensa Alley (typical eighteenth century large house that recreates the Colonial Buenos Aires) and Colonel Manuel Dorrego Square (every Sunday from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. there\'s an antiques fair), where you can spend some time at a coffee shop, tango or jazz dance clubs. The virtue of San Telmo neighborhood lies on those interesting places one gets to know while walking, while going through stone pavement and narrow streets that surround colonial buildings, many of which act as antique dealers and ateliers. If you want to feel something different, it\'s worth the visit.
