Barrio Norte, Buenos Aires

#18 of 23 in Neighborhoods in Buenos Aires
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
