Description

11:00 SPANISH 13:00 ENGLISH La Boca, a magnet for visitors to Buenos Aires, captivates with its unique atmosphere and rich history. This emblematic neighborhood, with its port roots and picturesque alleyways, is the birthplace of tango and home to the passionate soccer teams Boca Juniors and River Plate. Its social fabric, shaped by Genoese immigration, stands out amidst the opulence of the city's central neighborhoods. At the heart of La Boca lies Caminito, a vibrant passage along the Riachuelo, transformed into a living canvas by the renowned artist Quinquela Martín. This alley of dazzling colors is both a local and international icon, ranking among the world's most photographed destinations according to Google Maps. Exploring La Boca is to immerse oneself in a journey filled with emotions and discoveries. From the imposing Benito Quinquela Martín Museum to picturesque corners like Vuelta de Rocha and the PROA Foundation, each step reveals a new facet of this fascinating neighborhood. The iconic Bombonera stadium and the heroic volunteer fire brigade headquarters are just a few of the highlights awaiting exploration in this journey full of history and color.
