Stop At: Recoleta

The second most-beautiful book shop in the world: an old theater that was converted into a book shop.

An incredible large shopping mall that used to be the city’s central wholesale fruit and vegetable market. The original art deco building & structure remain largely untouched. The area of Carlos Gardel – the most famous tango singer in history- : House facades and shops covered in “fileteado” artwork. A creative art, one-of-a-kind, full of vivid colored ornaments and symmetries that became a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The style of painting associated with Buenos Aires that has much to do with tango and that have been part of the culture of the Porteños (inhabitants of Buenos Aires) since the beginnings of the 20th century. . Also, expect to view creative street art and murals painted by local artists, a tango clothes and shoes store, for a most memorable experience. This tour includes uncommonly visited city landmarks that deviate from your typical tourist locations.
