Colorful Buildings at Caminito in La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Welcome to the few blocks that are most visited by tourists in Buenos Aires! Caminito is brimming with artisans plus lively bars and restaurants housed in vibrant buildings. The atmosphere is unique, euphoric and inviting. In the mid-19th century, this was a derelict section of the La Boca neighborhood populated by Italian immigrants. Then, artist Benito Martín began using the decrepit walls of tenement houses as his canvas. This inspired composer Juan de Dios Filiberto to write the famous tango song “Caminito” meaning little alley. The crowds began to come and have grown ever since.
