Try any of the finest local beers, although is not really local, it's part of a global company. Tango time!

Come for the tango. Come for the art and antiques. Come for the bohemian district that is San Telmo. Heck, just come to Bar Dorrego and have a submarino (if you don't know what this is, I'm going to tell you to trust me and order it if you like hot chocolate). And when you're done exploring San Telmo, try dinner at El Baqueano nearby (waaay advanced reservations required) or make your way over to Puerto Madero.

Plaza Dorrego is the very life blood of San Telmo. It is the second most popular plaza in Buenos Aires after the Plaza de Mayo. The Plaze is lined with restaurants, cafe, bars, and souvenir shops. It is a great place to go to while away the time watching Portenos do their thing.

Perfect for anyone who wants to pick up an authentic Argentinian souvenir. Every Sunday there is a huge artisan fair. I picked up most of my souvenirs here. The prices are great and most, if not all, of the merchandise was made by hand.

Plaza Dorrego should be your first stop in San Telmo to begin soaking in the vibe of this historic neighborhood. It is surrounded by cafes, bars, and tango music.

I went here during the weekly Sunday street fair and it was a feast for the senses. If you are in San Telmo, this is a must go place. There were vendors, artist and street performers. This is the best place to buy souvenirs as there are a lot of options and the prices are relatively cheaper. Be very careful of pick pockets.

At the corner of Defensa and Humberto PrimoIt's, Plaza Darrego is a great place for a Sunday morning walk at the market. Not only you'll have a nice full-immersion among locals looking for the best deal of the day, but you will also have the chance to get the right deal. You’ll find antiquities, knickknacks for a small gift to bring back home, coffee places, street dancing, or just people strolling for a nice day out.

Plaza Dorrego es el corazón de San Telmo. Fue declarada Lugar Histórico Nacional porque fue aquí donde la población de Buenos Aires adhirió a la Declaración de la Independencia. Todos los fines de semana se lleva a cabo una feria de antigüedades, que atrae a muchos visitantes. También hay espectáculos de tango al aire libre todos los días. Uno puede sentarse a disfrutarlos en alguna de las mesas que pertenecen a los cafés y bares que rodean la plaza. Los elegantes edificios que la rodean datan de fines del siglo XIX y principios del XX.
