Caballito historic tramway

A ride on the Tranvía Histórico is a fun, free weekend activity for all the family. The historic trams/streetcars, lovingly maintained by Amigos del Tranvía (friends of the tramway) association, run on a two-kilometre loop in Caballito on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The stop is at Emilio Mitre 500.

It was the arrival of the tramway that led to the growth of this neighbourhood in the first half of the 20th century, and near to the tramway's starting and finishing point, you can find a residential area known as the Barrio Inglés, or English neighbourhood, because of the style of the large houses, which have been declared protected buildings by the city government.

The tram runs at the following times:

December to February: Saturdays and public holidays, 5pm - 8.30pm. Sundays, 10am - 1pm and 5pm - 8.30pm.

March to November: Saturdays and public holidays, 4pm - 7.30pm. Sundays, 10am - 1pm and 4pm - 7.30pm.
