Fileteado walk

Discover "fileteado", Buenos Aires' iconic decorative art.

Present in tours

Fileteado is a style of decorative art that developed in Buenos Aires towards the end of the 19th century. Now recognised by UNESCO as an important piece of international cultural heritage, the style makes use of strong colours and spiral, floral designs. It's believed that it was first employed to decorate horse-drawn carts, but is now closely associated with tango.

In the Paseo del Fileteado, in Calle Jean Jaures, close to the Abasto shopping centre in Balvanera, you can find the facades of buildings heavily decorated in this style.
