Barrio Norte, Buenos Aires

(4.1/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Rub elbows with the elite of the capital city in the well-to-do neighborhood of Barrio Norte. A yellow fever epidemic in 1871 in the the neighboring cities of San Telmo and Montserrat forced the most affluent families to relocate to this then up-and-coming neighborhood. Soon afterward, highrise apartments and comfortable rowhouses began to pop up everywhere, leading to the development of the city's most affluent neighborhood. The main street, Sante Fe Avenue, became known as an upscale shopping promenade for the middle class. Today the shopping and historic buildings attract many visitors. Plan your visit to Barrio Norte and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Buenos Aires trip builder.

  • Neighborhood that blends into the region North of Recoleta and Palermo, where several attractions such as the graveyard, the Plaza Mitre and the Las Heras Park. Worth a good walk without commitment throughout the region.
