DEFENSA y GARCIA, MARTIN AV.
Remaining in the south of the city, we move from La Boca to San Telmo, another neighbourhood that harks back to the city's origins. First walk through the Parque Lezama, a park designed by Charles Thays and location of the National History Museum.
The park carries the name of the wealthy Lezama family, who previously owned this land, and has been an important cultural reference in the city: Ernesto Sábato chose it for the setting of one of his novels, and Jorge Luis Borges declared his loved to fellow writer Estela Canto within the scultpure-strewn park.
If you need a break, a good option are the bars and cafes on Avenida Caseros, or those around the Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San Telmo neighbourhood and location of the antiques market on Sundays.
