Calle Museo Caminito, Buenos Aires
(3.3/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
See street art come to life at Calle Museo Caminito, a traditional alley that doubles as an open-air museum. Created by local artist Benito Quinquela Martin in the 1950s, the art project breathed life into a run-down part of town, transforming it into one of the city's most iconic spots. Appreciate the brightly colored houses and intricate paintings, which line the alleyway like a patchwork quilt. Tango lovers can share a passionate dance in the alley--this is where the famous Caminito tango was born. Calle Museo Caminito is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Buenos Aires Edition.

  • If you are in love with Boca Juniors, enjoy the ride and know he's very Caminito near the stadium. Colorful streets, handicrafts, artists "callejeros" but I didn't feel completely at ease in place. Half a day is more than enough to know this site.

  • Despite being a poor neighborhood, the Caminito is beautiful! All colorful, with many restaurants and shopping options

  • walk along this street caminto, you can buy varied handicrafts, eat or taste traditional beverages, but most of all take some photos with tango dancers, see the sculptures of great characters like maradona, eva peron and others, is a mega must-see, and see all its picturesque houses, a place that everywhere in buenos aires.
