Every Sunday visitors in Buenos Aires have a date with San Telmo, especially with its Flea Market known as the San Telmo Fair, a unique place where one can find all sorts of antiquities which are dusted every Sunday at dawn to be exposed in the morning. Join our Free San Telmo Market Tour and discover the smallest, oldest, and most traditional neighborhood in the Argentine capital, which still consists of narrow cobbled streets and is filled with 19th Century grand houses.

Go back in time to a Buenos Aires of low houses with red tiles, of dusty narrow streets where  rich families lived during the Spanish Colony. See Plaza de Mayo and understand how La Boca neighborhood was born.

Discover underground tunnels that connect streets, the narrowest house in the city, the best preserved colonial houses in town, grandiose façades in European style and bars and cafes with a wonderful bohemian atmosphere where the walls sound of tango and rock & roll.

On our San Telmo Market Tour you will fall in love with an artistic and deliciously bohemian city, fruit of the blend of europeans arrived from all corners of Europe which created that unmissable charming rascal: the porteño.
