Explore one of the most emblematic neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, home to tango poets, writers, artists, and most important of all: Footballers! On our La Boca Tour you will walk through the most colorful neighborhood of the Argentinean capital – one that has contributed the most to the country’s strong popular culture since the 19th century.

Discover how the neighborhood developed during the 19th century due to the arrival of countless immigrants. 

Visit one of the most important and legendary football stadiums in the world, La Bombonera. Dig deep into River Plate and Boca Juniors’ passionate football rivalry.

Understand the magnetism that this place has had for artists in the last century, which led to the creation of La Boca Pictorial School, and learn how the opposition to most artistic movements helped root the popular and proletarian culture of the immigrants who arrived from Europe to the neighborhood.

On our La Boca Tour you will understand the origins and the ingredients that helped give shape to the eclectic popular culture of Buenos Aires, which arrived in the rich New World from all corners of Europe – but most especially from the Mediterranean.

La Boca Tour Highlights

  • Admire the houses built with leftover materials from the shipyards (which mostly consisted of metal sheets and wood) painted in bold colours which can still be seen today.
  • Feel with the intensity of the Genovese immigrants that settled at La Boca and how that affected the main passion of the Argentinian people: football.
  • Discover why Diego Maradona and Quinquela Martin are personified metaphors of the colors and passion of La Boca.

5 out of 5

Communication on how /where to meet was great. Pablo was incredibly knowledgable with perfect English. Captured our imagination with his description of the street art, good to know the background & history of Tango La Boca & football. Would certainly recommend this as a must do tour for anyone as it covered so much. Thank you Pablo for sharing your knowledge with us. Many thanks.
