  • I believe all old market and world classic tells stories about the city, with the San Telmo market could not be different. Here it is possible to come across a show of colors and Argentine culture, in which fruit, meat, vegetables and other foods complement the rustic air of the place. Observe the routine of this people through market is a good option for those with time. If possible, look for the Choripans!

  • A single market both for its architecture and antiques that can be found. It gets from a machine of cut salami to Tin soldiers. There are also sets of dishes, furniture, pictures, etc... We also have butcher, grocer, greengrocer and a local to take a coffee break. Very full for a ride and enjoy without any trouble. It has entrances on different streets
