San Telmo is one of the city's oldest neighbourhoods, having witnessed Spanish colonial times, the British invasions and Argentina's independence. Nowadays its well-preserved cobbled streets have a bohemian vibe, with antiques shops and traditional bars sharing space with contemporary artists and trendy hangouts, while the streets still often reverberate to the sound of candombe drumming in the evenings. Hear the neighbourhood's many stories and see its grand 19th century mansions with our guided walking tour.
