Calle Lanín

This small residential lane is a colourful open-air art gallery

Calle Lanín, a small cobblestone lane in the Barracas neighbourhood, was transformed into an open-air art gallery by resident artist Marino Santa María. Marino began by intervening the facade of his own home in 1990. His neighbours liked the result, and began inviting him to decorate the fronts of their homes too, and, eventually, with the help of the city government, the Museo de Bellas Artes and Unesco, the work was extended to cover 35 houses over two blocks.
