The homes and buildings are colorfully painted, there’s always music to be heard, and street performances of Tango are a regular occurrence! Then continue to San Telmo, where the weekly San Telmo Antique Fair hosts more than 250 vendors. Mingle with residents who are out to shop and to enjoy the impromptu performances of dance and theater that make this one of the capitals liveliest events.
