Calle Museo Caminito, Buenos Aires

(3.3/5 based on 5,500+ 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.

  • Get to know a little bit of local history before coming here. The environment is interesting, is the best place to watch a tango show during lunch (prefer to have lunch here than go to a very expensive night show). Reserve also the place to shop for souvenirs.

  • Most beautiful place of the city, being essential to the visitor. Their homes were made by Spanish immigrants and painted with the remains of paints of vessels of Puerto Madero. The site has the richest culture of Buenos Aires with tango in the street, Argentina food quality, great prices and a unique experience.

  • If you have some spare time in Buenos Aires, dedicate a couple of hours to view this unique area, with a lot of "soul." Be careful, though. Go with someone else, and preferrably before dark.
