You can learn the historic story of San Telmo through some of the most interesting tourist destinations:
* Paseo de la historieta: this street circuit through the districts of Monserrat, San Telmo and Puerto Madero are a tribute to the main characters from the Argentine comic strip: Mafalda, Patoruzú, Isidoro, Clemente y Gaturro, …
* Facultad de Ingeniería: seat in Paseo Colón: this building, from the middle of the twentieth century, was built by the Foundation María Eva Duarte de Perón, but its founder died in 1952 and she never used her offices. After the Presidency of Juan Domingo Perón, the building was reformed as a Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires. The construction is a replica of the building of the Faculty of law in Recoleta, in a monumental and neo-classical style, typical for that time.
* El viejo Almacén: this old department store was built in the year 1798. In 1969 it was purchased by the famous tango vocalist Edmundo Rivero and changed it into one of the most important tango city halls.
* La casa Mínima: with less than 2.5 metres frontage, from the beginning of the 19 century, this building is known as the narrowest house in the city.
* Pasaje San Lorenzo: the majority of the buildings flanking the two blocks of this street date back to the middle of the 19th century and the first years of the 20th. In this street you can visit the Gallery Los Patios de San Telmo (now owned by a Fleming), a typical house from the 18th century, with artists ‘ studios and artists.
* Mercado de San Telmo: buy antiques, or toys from days gone by, mangoes from Formosa, special spices, Patagonian pâté or drink a coffee. It’s all possible on this one place: the fair of San Telmo. Incredible how the spirit of the first markets here is preserved in Buenos Aires. Minutes of the Obelisk, with typical Italian facades and spacious interiors, this market is a must both for the residents of the area as for the hundreds of daily tourists.
* Plaza Dorrego: this is where the street market takes place every Sunday in San Telmo and is one of the most walking destinations of the inhabitants of Buenos Aires. Numerous sales stalls give this place an air of sophisticated antique flea market. Located in the middle of the San Telmo district, many of these houses from the 19th century transformed into cafés and antique shops (typical for the street Defensa) or created one. The bars put tables on the street and it is one of the most artistic environments of the city. The Plaza is of historical importance because, here in 1816 to the people of Buenos Aires announced that several months before independence was already in Tucumán was proclaimed.
